Semi-final matches of the 2023 edition of the Zenith Bank/ Delta Principals Cup football competition will hold today at two centres.

The last four teams emerged from the quarter-finals matches that were played last Friday.

The four semi-finalists are Illah Grammar School, Illah, Umuaja Secondary School, Umuaja, Institute of Continue Education, ICE, Sapele and Government College, Ughelli.

According to the semi-finals fixtures released by the organisers, Abor Stadium will host the semis between Illah and Umuaja just as Oleh Stadium is the venue where ICE will clash with Government College.

To get to this stage, ICE defeated Essi College in the last eight stage, Umuaja defeated Community Quality Secondary School 3-1 while Ilah scaled through 7-6 on penalties against Model Secondary School Asaba full time score stood at 1-1.

Government College Ughelli edged out Ewu Government School on technical grounds.

CEO of Hideaplus, organisers of the tournament, Tony Pemu, explained that it was important to protect the integrity of the competition.

“We discovered that some players who featured for some schools in the early stage of the tournament were paraded by Ewu against Government College. We had no choice than to disqualify them.

“The semis will be very entertaining because all these four teams have done well consistently this year,” said Pemu.

The Third Place and final of the competition is billed to take place at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba on Thursday November 30.
