Aderoju Ademoroti is the CEO of Astro Soccer Nigeria Ltd. (ASNL), a company that develops sports infrastructure, hosts and facilitates high caliber football experiences for a variety of companies, groups, and organizations. And, while ASNL has built up an impressive clientele list, and hosted some incredibly successful events, one of their biggest successes took place a mere one year after the company began in 2005.
Aderoju Ademoroti has been instrumental as the company’s CEO since 2005. So, it makes sense that Astro Soccer Nigeria Ltd. hit the ground running with a mover-shaker like Ademoroti behind the wheel. In 2006, Aderoju Ademoroti built the first artificial playing surface for football in Nigeria, Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi. The sports complex is designed for five-a-side football.
However, Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi isn’t just impressive because it’s the first of its kind. It’s well known throughout West Africa for being a first-class sports facility. Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi features seating for 850 spectators, and also has a stylish lounge area that can hold up to 150 corporate guests.
Furthermore, Aderoju Ademoroti was disciplined in being sure Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi would meet all FIFA standards while it was being built. Also, it features 5th generation turf, one of the best artificial turf systems available on the market today. Aderoju Ademoroti is also proud of the fact that his impressive football facilities are completely backed by private funding.
Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi has drawn in a tremendous amount of business for Astro Soccer Nigeria Ltd. over the last six years. The site has been home to numerous corporate, NGO, and non-profit events that have helped promote unity, team building, and networking efforts in Nigeria. Aderoju Ademoroti hopes that the success his company has seen with Astroturf 2000 Ikoyi will enable them to open up more world-class facilities throughout Nigeria and other parts of West Africa.
