Aruna Quadri has entered into a three-year endorsement deal worth $75,000 with sports betting firm, Premier Lotto.
The deal gives Premier Lotto “the right to use Quadri’s name, likeness, voice, signature and biographical details as well photographs and other materials in promotional, sponsorship, advertising or marketing material relating” to its products.
Quadri is also expected to attend and participate in Premier Lotto’s promotional activities during each year.
The deal takes effect from October 1, 2017.
Quadri, who recently crashed out of the ITTF World Cup in Liege, Belgium, said he is happy that Premier Lotto heeded his plea for support ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.
“I am so happy with this development and this is indeed a dream come true for me because I have been looking for opportunity like this particularly from my home country,” he said.
“This is indeed a morale booster for me to continue to work harder and hoping that Premier Lotto’s support will help me attend more competitions and play with the best in the world in my bid to continue to do Nigeria proud in major competitions.
“All these efforts will dovetail into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan, where I hope to do better than what I achieved in Rio 2016.”
