The Grand Finale Returns to its Historic Home


The Nigeria Football Federation has announced a dramatic change of venue for the prestigious President Federation Cup grand finale.

The iconic Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos will now host the highly anticipated event on Saturday, June 29th.

Steeped in history, the Mobolaji Johnson Arena has witnessed some of the most thrilling moments in Nigerian football. The venue has been revived, and the nostalgia is palpable.

The last time the arena hosted the grand finale was in 1972, when Bendel Insurance FC and Mighty Jets FC clashed in an epic encounter that ended 2-2, with the replay held at the Liberty Stadium in Ibadan.

Lagos, the city of football passion, has a rich history of hosting the President Federation Cup finals. The National Stadium in Surulere, the Teslim Balogun Stadium, and the Agege City Stadium have all played host to the grand finale over the years.

This year, the stage is set for a thrilling showdown. Rivers Angels will face Naija Ratels in the women’s event, while Abia Warriors will battle El-Kanemi Warriors in the men’s event. The tension is building, and the excitement is palpable.
