NFF, Lagos State plan for memorable Federation Cup final

The Nigeria Football Federation and Lagos State Government have concluded plans to make the grand finale of this year’s Federation Cup competition a memorable one.

Officials announced on Tuesday that the grand finale will be preceded by a range of activities, including a tour of media houses planned for Thursday to showcase the trophies, as well as a novelty football match between officials of the Nigeria Football Federation and the Nigeria Premier League as curtain raiser on the big day.

The grand finale of the 66th Federation Cup competition will take place at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos on Sunday, 25th September, 2011.

The competition started in 1945 – same year as the foundation of the football-governing body in the country- and has failed to hold only in 1973, when Nigeria hosted the 2nd All-Africa Games.

Ocean Boys will clash with Bayelsa United in the third place match starting at 2pm, while last year’s runners-up and CAF Champions League semi finalists Enyimba tackle Heartland in the final match starting at 4pm.
