The maiden edition of the AKWA IBOM STATE SUPER FOUR tournament is on the way, featuring Akwa United, Akwa starlet, Ibom youth F.C, and Cofine F.C.
The Round-robin tournament is meant to prepare the State’s representative clubs in the different leagues of the country after an 18-day FIFA World Cup break.
Akwa United, a strong contender in the Nigerian Professional Football League(NPFL) had resumed from the break and have been training for four days in a row at the Uyo Township Stadium, the playing turf of the State’s Nigerian Women Professional League representatives, Ibom Angels.
Nigerian National League side, Akwa Starlet who are currently sitting in the third position in Group B1 will also seek to prove their dominance considering the array of quality the team parades.
Ibom Youth F.C and Cofine F.C might not be popular in the continent but their strides in the Nationwide league and the Aiteo Cup playoffs will grant both a level of experience to upstage victory over Akwa United, who have arguably been the most successful club in the Southern Nigerian state of Akwa Ibom.
The tournament will kick off on 4th July 2018 at the Uyo township stadium where Cofine F. C will take on Akwa starlet F.C 2 pm Nigerian time.
Each team will play three matches respectively. The Club which ends up with the highest points will be awarded a Gold-plated trophy.
