FC Ifeanyi Ubah and Nasarawa United would be aiming for their first title as both teams clash in the final of the 2016 Federation Cup today.
When Nasarawa United defeated 2015 Federation Cup champions Akwa United in the quarterfinals, it was evident new winners would emerge in Nigeria’s oldest football competition.
The Lafia-based club are now seeking to complete their fairytale run when they take on fellow Nigeria Professional Football League side, FC IfeanyiUbah — who were involved in two controversial games earlier on — in the final at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, on Sunday.
Both teams are appearing in the final for the first time, the second time it’s happening in three years. And they are hoping to pick the final continental slot available, as the winners would represent Nigeria in next season’s CAF Confederation Cup alongside Wikki Tourists, who finished third in the league last season.
