The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has approved Sunday, November 23 as 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 final on this date would still leave enough time for Nigeria’s flag bearer in the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup to register for the competition.
The grand finale of the 2014 Men and Women Federation Cup competitions have 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 its Commissioner for Sports, Wahid Oshodi, has pledged to ensure glamour for the grand finale of the event which Lagos has hosted for some years.
