As of Monday, 30th October, event entries hit 3,500 from over 2,000 Athletes from 107 Schools and 32 Junior Teams, immediately breaking all Athlete and School registration records set just last week at MTN CHAMPS Uyo!

Athletes/Schools can stop registering for MTN CHAMPS Ibadan as entries will no longer be accepted. All roads lead to Abuja where registration is still open until capacity is reached.

Below is the summary of Entries, both by Athlete Registrations and School Registrations.

Ibadan will be the ‘Final before the Final’ and in an unprecedented move, MTN CHAMPS will now take over Ibadan across two locations – at the Lekan Salami Stadium on November 9th to 11th, for the Youth & Junior events as well as the Finals, and now also the University of Ibadan Sports Complex simultaneously on November 9th and 10th for the Cadet Heats & Preliminaries! 1 Championship, 2 locations – which Schools will win the Team Titles and who will qualify for the Grand Final in Abuja? You’ve got to be in Ibadan to find out!

It is compulsory for at least one parent or legal guardian of each participating athlete to sign the Parental Consent Form, which can be downloaded here.

ALL Athletes must also print the 1-page parental consent form for their parent or legal guardian to sign and return at bib collection – a recognized contact of each Athletes’ School/Team should coordinate collection of their bibs and the return of their signed parental consent forms!
