Recall that last year’s event was painfully and regrettably put off. As Law abiding citizens we had to call it off to avoid needless faceoff and breach of the law.
Igoche Mark reveals during the press conference held in Abuja that this year Mark D Ball shall be at a new venue located at Akpegede, Otukpo, the ancestral home of the distinguished Senator and it shall be called the Mark D BALL Arena which promises bigger space, a safe and exciting environment. Akpegede is also home to the St. Mark Golf and Country club.
The event is back in line with senator Mark’s belief and promise that MARK D BALL like his other sports involvements are legacies he desires to outlive him irrespective of political and economic circumstances.
Igoche Mark expressed their profound gratitude to all who stood by this tournament and have greatly believed the visions of MarkDBall, he concluded that Mark D’ Ball is fully back alive.
One of the highlights of the event is the children’s clinic in the last edition we had over 400 kids. This year, we hope to accommodate up to 1,000 children. The focus this year is on the family therefore we have infused a number of a new activities that promise to be fun for every member of the family.
We will be playing host to a number of renowned African and Nigerian retired and reigning basket ballers.
