Gateway Games 2024 National Sports Festival Organizers begin search for ceremonies’ team

The organizers of the Gateway Games, 2024 have launched the quest for creative groups to produce show-stopping Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the next National Sports Festival.

This follows the inauguration of the Local Organizing Committee for the Games by Governor Dapo Abiodun last month.

“Ogun State is not just the educational capital, we’re also the creative capital of Nigeria and there’ll be so much local talent and inspiration for our ceremonies production team to draw upon to tell the Ogun State story,” Modele Sarafa-Yusuf, Chairperson of the Protocol and Ceremonial sub-committee said.

“An Expression of Interest is the first phase in recruiting the production team.”

The 2024 Games are the second to be hosted in Ogun State and organizers are challenging creative industries to use the tender as “an opportunity to think differently.” “Ogun is a trail-blazer in all respects and that’s what I want the nation to see during our opening and closing ceremonies,” Sarafa-Yusuf added.

Organizers say that the Ceremonies team will be involved with everything from bringing up creative ideas and collaborating with people, to overseeing auditions with local artists and managing the technical aspects of the production.

“Our vision is that Gateway Games 2024 will honour the different cultures of the predominant ethnic groups in Ogun State, recognize their representatives in formal protocols, and share the history and contemporary stories of our state. “
