On January 14, 2023, Premier Projects (Premier Bet CSR division) officially launched Premier Projects Basketball Arena. They renovated a basketball court in the capital’s city centre for the local community to enjoy and practice basketball in a safe and bright environment.
Premier Projects Arena – Lycee Felix Eboue
Located in N’Djamena, this basketball arena was renovated by Premier Projects, on behalf of Premier Bet Chad, for the people of the commune. This arena is for basketball players and is easily accessible. The basketball court of the Lycée Éboué in N’Djamena is a mythical place where the greatest names in Chadian basketball have trained. Over the years, it has fallen into an increasingly dilapidated state. It is now fully renovated, bright and functional and equipped with solar panels to play matches even at sunset, much to the delight of the players. Premier Projects’ hope is to see the next big basketball names training at this new Arena.
