Despite the fact that I have a huge television at home, hanging out with friends and discussing about the latest football trends is what makes going to a football viewing center fun.
During the weekends, there are always a lot of matches, there are also midweek matches, although not every week. The cost of viewing a match in most places in Nigeria is low, most times its N100. Imagine if you start this and your viewing center is sufficiently spacious enough to accommodate 100 people, you will stand to make roughly N10, 000 per match.
In situations where there are matches at various time, say; Arsenal vs. Chelsea 1 pm, Man united vs. Liverpool 4 pm, Barcelona vs. Real Madrid 9 pm. That will mean a sum of N10, 000 multiply by 3 = N 30,000 on a single day. Isn’t that a good small scale business?
