NNL clubs' remarkable show at states Federation Cup, a positive development, says Aluo

Posted : 31 March 2024

In an unprecedented performance in recent times, an increased number of clubs campaigning in the Nigeria National League (NNL) have secured qualification for their States' Federation Cup Final.

The finals are slated from March 29th to 31st, 2024.

In Lagos State, Inter Lagos overcame their more flamboyant Nigeria Premier Football League side, Sporting Lagos, in the semi-final with a 2-0 result, while another NNL team, Ikorodu City, subdued First Bank FC with a 3-0 scoreline in the same stage.

Both Inter Lagos and Ikorodu City will play each other in the final.

The same scenario will be witnessed in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, where two NNL teams; EFCC FC and Sporting Supreme, will face each other in the final.

FC Rocket, another NNL team, also qualified for the Akwa Ibom State final where they will clash against NPFL's Akwa United.

Warri Wolves, Coal City, Cynosure, and Ekiti United have also secured their spots in Delta State, Enugu State, Ebonyi, and Ekiti States' finals, respectively, as Edel FC and Solutions FC punched their tickets to the Anambra State final.

Beyond Limits stepped into the Ogun State final to face fellow NNL campaigners Stormers SC, while Nasarawa United, Osun United, and ABS also underlined the remarkable development in the second-tier division with a place in Ogun, Osun, Kwara, and Nasarawa States' finals.

This catalogue of impressive posts in the country's oldest domestic competition has, according to observers, sparked some level of confidence among all stakeholders.

NNL Chairman George Aluo, while commenting on this positive trend at the state level, commended the club administrators, the players, and other personnel involved in the strides being made by the league.

"What we are witnessing in the States' Final of the Federation Cup is a reflection of the deliberate efforts by every stakeholder to make the NNL a league of repute. As I speak, some of our clubs will be in about 10 State Finals of the Federation Cup. In fact, Anambra, Lagos, and Ogun states' Finals will see titles being contested for between two NNL Clubs."

He urged the clubs to sustain the upward trajectory the NNL has been going through as he called on sponsors to see these opportunities and partner with the body for national development.
