FC Ifeanyiubah will on Wdenesday, November 23, 2016 present to the people of Anambra State the Federation Cup which they won last month after a 5-4 penalty kicks triumph over Nasarawa United, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The ceremony was earlier billed to hold three weeks ago, but officials of the Anambra Warriors put the event off for undisclosed reasons.
It is the first national silverware lifted by the club in their two years of existence following a buy-over of Gabros International FC, also of Nnewi.
An official of the club confirmed exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com on Sunday that all logistics have now been put in place for the trophy public show to hold on Wednesday.
“The trophy parade will hold on Wednesday,” our reliable source informs.
“It’s not restricted to Nnewi alone but throughout Anambra State.
“This is the first time a club from this state won the Federation Cup, the oldest cup competition in Nigeria."
FC Ifeanyiubah lifted the giant trophy in their first final appearance and will go on to represent Nigeria in next year’s CAF Confederation Cup competition along with Wikki Tourists of Bauchi who finished third in the Nigeria Professional Football League behind winners, Enugu Rangers and runners-up, Rivers United.
