Government of Enugu State has assured football fans and the League Management Company (LMC) of a successful hosting of the first ever Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Super4 tournament which holds at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium from December 7-11.
Assurances from the State Governor, His Excellency Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi was conveyed to the LMC through the State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Hon. Charles Ndukwe who disclosed that the Governor described the hosting of the tournament as an honour to the state and an indication that Enugu is a frontline football state.
The State Football Association Chairman, Chidi Offor Okenwa also described the NPFL Super4 hosting as the finest moment for the people of Enugu State coming on the heels of Rangers International’s triumph in the 2015/16 season of the NPFL.
According to LMC Sources in Enugu disclosed that the Commissioner and the State FA Chairman met with Governor Ugwuanyi Wednesday night at the Government House to discuss plans for not only hosting the tournament but also how to inspire Rangers to win the tournament.
“This is another great football moment for us in Enugu State and our target is not just to host the best NPFL Super4 tournament but to crown it with victory for Rangers”, the Governor was quoted as saying.
Rivers United, Wikki Tourists and FC IfeanyiUbah are the three clubs that will join Rangers for the country’s biggest pre-season tournament organised by the LMC to prepare clubs representing Nigeria in CAF Club competitions.
The tournament is usually a hub for international and domestic football player scouts who throng the venue to assess some of the best players in the nation’s top flight league. Akwa United won the last edition.
