The Nigeria Football Federation has approved Sunday, November 23 as the date for the grand finale of this year’s Men and Women Federation Cup competitions.
At its meeting in Abuja on Wednesday night, the NFF Executive Committee endorsed the date and observed that holding the finale on this date would still leave enough time for Nigeria’s flagbearer in the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup to register for the competition.
The grand finale of the 2014 Men and Women Federation Cup competitions had suffered a couple of postponements due to the crises that rocked the Nigeria Football Federation for three months.
Cup holders Enyimba FC of Aba will confront Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt in the men’s final while Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt and Sunshine Queens of Akure face off in the women’s final, to be played same day at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
Already, the Lagos State Government, through the Honourable Commissioner for Sports, Hon. Wahid Enitan Oshodi has pledged to ensure even greater glamour for the grand finale, which the Centre of Excellence has consistently and creditably hosted for a number of years now.
