NNL: Super 4 Tournament To Hold In Lagos
The new-look “Soccer Temple’’, Agege Stadium in Lagos will come alive again from this weekend as all is now set for the end of season Super 4 Tournament.
The Super 4 Tournament is used to determine the overall champions of the season in the Bet9ja Nigeria National League (NNL) and it will be holding in Lagos from Jan. 7 to Jan. 9.
The league’s Chief Operating Officer, Lawrence Katken, said on Wednesday in Lagos that the three-day tournament would be keenly contested.
Heartland FC of Owerri and Afonja Warriors of Ilorin, emerged winners of both the Southern and Northern Conferences in the regular season of the league.
Go-Round FC of Omoku and Yobe Desert Stars of Damaturu were both runners up and will also compete in the tournament.
Katsina United, Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS), Remo Stars and Gombe United competed in the Super 4 last season with Katsina emerging champions.
According to Katken, the tournament is expected to attract soccer fans to the venue owing to the pedigree of the four teams that will play in the Nigeria Professional Football League in the new season.
“Apart from the stiff competition expected, the Super 4 will provide a veritable platform to reward deserving individuals and administrators who distinguished themselves in the 2016/2017 season,’’ Katken said in a statement.
