Coach Tommy during a chat with the Sporting Hope before the departure of the state’s contingent in Akure to the championship,said the state is parading two teams Owena Kings and Owena Queens in the league.
He said over 12 male and 10 female teams will compete in the Nigeria most prestigious Handball Premier League that kicked off on October 5, to 17 which is taking place at the Rowe Park Sports Center ,Yaba, Lagos State .
He thanked the state government for giving approval to all that was needed for the league, saying his players are ready to roar like Lion.
He added that with the zeal and morale of the players in camp, hopefully something good will happen .
“We are hopeful of winning the league because the boys and girls have fully prepared for it.”
His words, once again, I commend the state government for encouraging us financially to don the colour of the state in the league, because any state that fails to participate in the league will be relegated automatically from the league with serious sanctions.”
“Which is going to affect all the categories of such state contingent in any organised Handball Federation of Nigeria core tournaments, of under -12, -15,-18 ,- 21 and senior teams.”
