In a country of over 150 million people, no other tv show attracts much loyalty as football events and that is why running a football business in population dense areas in Nigeria can be a good business.

Imagine being able to make money in Nigeria just by allowing people to watch football tv in your entertainment center? Well the football tv viewing center business is one of the new and growing profitable businesses one can do in Nigeria as all you need to do is build it and they will surely come. You can make money from gate tickets, advertising as well as consumption sales.

After work, what do people do to relax? Well at times they just go home, while some go to clubs, others go on dates and at times they just want to be entertained. TV viewing centres are in vogue now in Nigeria and they are different categories of them spreading over cities like Lagos and Abuja. Some category of viewing centers are for the big boys while others are for the low income class depending on the gate fee.

Although, live football viewing is one of the more popular viewing service people are willing to pay for in Nigeria, especially during the season, you can also have some other side attractions when there is no live football like movies and football videos.

To start a viewing center, the basic asset one really needs is a piece of land in a serene environment and you can then setup a main wide screen using a projector or big screen tv.

You know, there are times people may not like going to clubs to party or dance but just want to relax and be at peace with themselves while getting entertained. Besides some clubs can be more expensive than viewing centers so most Nigerians tend to flock to these places as a great place to also socially connect with people in their class.
