The announcement comes just 24 hours before the semi-finals of the competition.

According to the Secretary General of the NFF, Mohammed Sanusi, this decision was made in collaboration with the GTI to ensure compliance with the Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) deadline for submitting the names of Nigerian teams participating in upcoming African competitions.

“Having carefully reviewed our programmes, the progress of the men’s and women’s competitions, and the need to submit the names of all our representative clubs to CAF for next season’s African club competitions, GTI and ourselves reached consensus for the grand final of the men’s and women’s President’s Federation Cup finals to take place on Saturday, June 29,” Sanusi stated.

The MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja will host the event, with the women’s final set to commence at 1 p.m., followed by the men’s final at 4 p.m., maintaining a tradition that has been in place for many years.

The NFF, in partnership with GTI, is committed to delivering an exceptional event for the grand finale.

The women’s competition quarter-finals are scheduled to be held on Wednesday, June 19, in Benin City, Asaba, and Enugu.

Meanwhile, the men’s semi-finals will take place on Thursday, June 20, in Abuja and Lafia.

The anticipation for the finals is building, with football fans across the country eagerly awaiting the culmination of one of Nigeria’s most prestigious football tournaments.

The MKO Abiola National Stadium, a venue with a rich history of hosting significant sporting events, is expected to provide a fitting stage for the final showdowns.

The President’s Federation Cup is a critical competition in the Nigerian football calendar, serving as a platform for showcasing local talent and providing teams with the opportunity to qualify for continental tournaments.

This year’s edition has seen fierce competition, with clubs from across the country vying for the coveted trophy.

As the semi-finals approach, teams are gearing up for what promises to be an exciting conclusion to the tournament.
