Unity Preseason Tournament: Nasarawa United, Cynosure sets ball rolling

2021 AITEO cup finalists, Nasarawa United, will play the opening match of the maiden edition of the Unity Preseason Tournament which is holding in Abuja.

The Lafia outfit will battle giants killers, Cynosure FC of Abakaliki.

In a draw released at the weekend by the Organising Committee of the tournament, Nasarawa United are grouped in Group A alongside two NLO sides Fosla FC and Mavlon FC.

In the second match of the opening day, former Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Plateau United FC, will be on stage against another NLO team from Abuja Waco FC.

Plateau United are in Group B with Sokoto United and EFCC FC as well who will square it up with each other in the last match of the first day.

According to the Coordinator of the tournament, Patrick Ngwaogu, Katsina United, Wikki Tourists, Capital City FC and NYSC Strikers will settle scores in Group C.

Ngwaogu, who was the former First Vice Chairman of FCT Football Association, said teams are expected to make seven changes in a match.

This, he said, is to enable the teams to have the opportunity of assessing all their players.

The former Abia Warriors FC Sporting Director said that only one team is expected to emerge from each of the groups with one best loser for the semi-finals.

He insisted that all FIFA rules governing the game of football would be applied in the tournament.
