The grand finale of this year’s President Federation Cup men and women competitions will take place at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Saturday, June 29, the Nigeria Football Federation has announced.

The women’s edition is currently in the quarter-finals stage while the men’s event is in the last four.

NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, said that the date has been agreed upon by both the NFF and GTI in order to meet up with CAF’s deadline for the submission of the country’s representatives in next season’s continental club competitions.

“Having looked closely at our programmes, the stage the men and women competitions are at the moment and the need to submit the names of all our representative clubs to CAF for African Club Competitions next season, we have reached a consensus for the grand finale of the men and women finals of the President Federation Cup to take place on Saturday, June 29,” Sanusi said in a statement shared by the NFF.

“The venue is the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja. The women’s final will begin at 1pm while the men’s final will commence at 4pm.”

Meanwhile, the quarter-finals of the women’s competition will take place on Wednesday (today), in Benin City, Asaba and Enugu.

The semi-finals of the men’s competition will take place on Thursday, June 20 in Abuja and Lafia.

Nasarawa Amazons go up against Remo Stars Ladies at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, in what is undoubtedly one of the potentially-explosive encounters of the quarter-finals of the women’s competition.

The Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium is also the venue for the clash between Delta Queens and Sunshine Queens, while FC Robo Queens of Lagos and Naija Ratels of Abuja clash in another tantalising match-up in Asaba.

The Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu – where Enugu Rangers emerged champions of this year’s NPFL season on Sunday – is the venue for the clash between Osun Babes and Rivers Angels.

Inspired Abia Warriors will go all out for glory when they take on traditional powerhouse team and former winners Kano Pillars in one of the semi-finals of this year’s President Federation Cup, at the Lafia City Stadium on Thursday.

In the other semi-final, El-Kanemi Warriors are also highly inspired after securing promotion to the NPFL following the conclusion of the NNL Super 8 Tournament. The team has been promoted alongside Nasarawa United, Beyond Limits and Ikorodu City.

Their opponents are Kebbi United, who fear no foe and have reached this stage by defeating higher-rated ABS FC of Ilorin, NPFL side Akwa United and EFCC FC of Abuja. It promises an interesting evening at the NFF/FIFA Goal Project on Thursday.
