TECNO had recognised the need to be more involved in the growth of football in Africa and no better place to start than to be a sponsor at Africa’s premier football competition.

The focus for all was geared to TECNO’s deliberate choice to sponsor AFCON, wondering if it perfectly aligns with the company’s overarching objectives. Thompson Ani, BTL Manager for TECNO Nigeria, underscored the significance of this collaboration, as he stated,

Our involvement with CAF for AFCON epitomizes TECNO’s ‘Stop At Nothing’ philosophy, aiming to uplift African football, particularly in Nigeria, and fostering a connection with the continent’s passions and aspirations.

As the conversation flowed, an electric anticipation filled the room. Suddenly, TECNO unleashed the news: the SPARK 20 series, a revolutionary leap forward in mobile technology. Gasps rippled through the crowd as the groundbreaking features were unveiled.
