“16 Teams – 1 winner”, that was the caption for the recently concluded maiden edition of the Egbin Power Community Cup. The 16 teams were drawn from the 3 host communities Egbin, Ijede and Ipakan.
The match draws took place in November 2019 while the tournament itself ran through December. The turnout of spectators for the event was very impressive with a special guest appearance by Daniel “The Bull” Amokachi, an ex- Super eagles team member. He was warmly received by the crowd of spectators, traditional rulers and the footballers themselves.
The local inter-club competition was put together as a CSR Initiative to promote cordial relationships within the host communities while keeping the youths engaged with a view to helping them be discovered by football talent scouts.The competition ended with Alaanu Omo Boys FC emerging victorious, carting home the grand prize and a gold trophy.
