Final of Covenant chancellor cup holds Sunday

The final of Covenant University Chancellor football Cup holds by 2pm on Sunday, April 7.

The competition with the theme “one champion” featured 12 teams spread into four groups.

The final match takes place on the newly commissioned 6,500 capacity artificial turf stadium of the university.

The competition has ushered in a new set of unbridled talents providing the solution to the much awaited new generational footballers who could place the country back on the pedestal of sport glory.

One of them is Wisdom Igiebor whose mesmerising performance in the competition has earned him the appellation Covenant Ohenhen.

The left-footed footballer has shattered all football records in the school, including scoring eye-catching free kicks.

The free kick wizardry of the lanky 200 Level Banking and Finance undergraduate has catapulted him into the highest goal scorer in the competition history.

The younger brother of Nosa Igiebor, 2013 AFCON winner with Super Eagles is a deadly left free kick specialist, an unrepentant dribbler and visionary passer.

Another revelation is Moses Ekoh, popularly called the Berlin wall, a suave shot stopper.

He saves penalty with style and has a maverick disposition in one on one.

He has kept 6 clean sheets in seven games in the CU premier league, showing ability to fit in seamlessly in Barcelona or any Pep’s team as he is adept with his feet.

He helps his team builds attack from the back.

Live stream of the final match is provided by Bspot, the sport marketing and talent management firm.

Head, Activation and Partnership of Bspot, Babatunde Amusa, said: “We consider it a privilege and we shall pursue our mission with a mindset of unwritten social contract to deliver a platform for limitless possibilities for youths across our higher institutions and of course the society within which we operate.”

A dinner party holds at the luxurious university guest house after the match by 7pm.
