Agon Abuja’s sixth edition, ‘Six and the City’ I must say was easily one of my favorite day activities in the year so far.


It might be rather strange to hear as I particularly am not an ardent football fan. (Boooo! yeah, I know)

However the event was packed with a whole lot of other social activities and of course food (my favorite part). With a very hands-on team, the waviest of all DJs who made me channel my inner Shakira and of course, the beautiful people of Abuja, it  was a movie!

Even when mother nature hit us with the best of her thunderstorms, she couldn’t hold us down from having a good time.

What’s Agon though?

So ‘Agon’ is an ancient Greek word which simply means combat. In this context it was in regards to athletics, arts or theatre.

It is also in the light of this context that the “Six and the City” crooners take their name. It is a yearly, 1 day  5-a-side football competition; 8 teams (both male and female) , a trophy and some cash “moneh”. (I mean, how cool is that?)

Another thing that was brilliant about Agon were their hash tags and the team names. Below are the various team jerseys and their names modeled by the AgonAbuja members.
