And on Friday, the NFF president and the General Secretary were fully on ground for the final match. The environment was serene and the quality of football displayed was of high class . The final match was won by the Shooting Stars and received a sum of N100m, (one hundred million naira only).

I want to use this opportunity to sincerely appreciate Prince Kunle Soname who bailed us out at the last minute with his world class facilities in Remo without which the tournament would have been very difficult to start. 

A very big shout out to the Hon minister, the NFF president, the first Vice president of the NFF, the General Secretary, the HOO of the IMC, the entire committee members of the IMC, our partners and sponsors (Dozi Mmobuosi,the Tingo media group),all the players and officials of the participating teams, our friends in the media and everyone who contributed one way or the other to the success of the pre season tournament.” He concluded.
