Federation Cup final to hold June 15 in Asaba
The final matches of the 2023 Federation Cup Competition in both the male and female categories will take place at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba on June 15.
The day will begin with the women’s final match between defending champions Bayelsa Queens and Rivers Angels from 2 p.m.
Bayelsa Queens beat FC Robo Queens of Lagos in the final of the 2021 competition at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
The men’s final match, between 1978 champions Bendel Insurance of Benin and Rangers International of Enugu, will kick off at 5 p.m.
Both Bendel Insurance and Rangers have contested two of the most memorable final matches in the history of the men’s competition.
The Benin City side dismantled the much-feared Rangers 3-0 in the 1978 final at the National Stadium in Lagos.
Three years later, Rangers exacted their revenge, with a 2-0 win after goals from Okwuchukwu Obiora and Ifeanyi Onyedika.
