The semi-final matches of this year’s AITEO Cup competition for men and women will hold on Wednesday, with the exception of the clash between champions Rivers Angels and Bayelsa Queens in the women’s event.
The mouth-watering encounter, set for the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu has been put on hold as the NFF Disciplinary Committee meets on Wednesday over a protest filed by Sunshine Queens of Akure, questioning the eligibility of two Rivers Angels’ players. The champions had beaten Sunshine Queens 2-0 in the quarterfinals.
That game has now been scheduled for Friday, 12th October.
In the men’s event, Kano Pillars, who overpowered CAF Confederation Cup semi-finalists Enyimba FC in the quarterfinals, will light up the Agege Stadium in Lagos with in-form Katsina United.
At the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano, five-time champions Rangers International will lock horns with Nasarawa United, who got the better of El-Kanemi Warriors in the last eight.
Meanwhile, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi confirmed on Tuesday that the grand finale of the women’s competition will hold at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa on Tuesday, 23rd October, while the grand finale of the men’s competition will be played at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, capital of Delta State on Wednesday, 24th October.
