At VMClouds, we are elated by our recent endeavor that has set new benchmarks in sports broadcasting in Nigeria. Teaming up with our esteemed client, AfroSport Lagos, we’ve played a pivotal role in redefining the sports entertainment frontier through our groundbreaking solutions.

As a leading system integrator, we metamorphosed this area into a premium broadcasting hub, adept at showcasing major events like the CAF, Premier League, and more. Our crowning moment was spotlighting the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021 held in Cameroon.
