The Ballers Awards is an exclusive annual event, where the exemplary achievements of Nigerian footballers, in the year under review are celebrated.
Football is a universal sport, the most watched and most loved sport in the world. The men and women who make the sport happen are often at the receiving end of so much criticism despite actively giving their all.
