The Nigeria Football Federation has sounded a note of warning to the Football Associations in the 36 States of the Federation and the FCT to conclude their Federation Cup final matches on either 30th March or 31st March as instructed by the NFF, or risk a penalty of N1million.

This warning was given on Monday by the NFF’s Director of Competitions, Ruth David yesterday.

According to her, the NFF will no longer condone the disruptive attitude of some FAs who set their own timetables outside that of the federation.

“The NFF has stated clearly in the schedule from the beginning, that the States must play their final matches either on Saturday, 30th March or Sunday, 31st March. We have also reminded the States again about this schedule, and any State that fails to abide by the dates will have itself to blame.

“Any State that fails to conclude its championship by Sunday, 31st March will be fined the sum of N1million. Any State that concludes its championship before Saturday, 30th March will be fined the same amount of money.”

This year’s Federation Cup competition in the States began on Friday, 1st March 2024.      

It will be recalled Bendel Insurance won the 2023 Nigerian Federation Cup, also known as the Nigerian FA Cup, beating Enugu Rangers 1-0.T his was Bendel Insurance’s fourth Federation Cup title and their first since 1980 as they ended a 28 years trophy drought.
