The 2020 Dapo Abiodun Cup will kick-off on Tuesday evening with the much-anticipated match between Kwara United FC and Remo Stars at the mainbow of the Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode.
The tourney organizers have confirmed the 12 clubs that will participate in this year’s edition and the draws were conducted on Monday. It should be noted that Kano Pillars pulled out ahead of the draws.
The tournament is supported by Nigeria’s number one betting company, Bet9ja, and newly birthed airline, ValueJet.
In a related development, Shooting Stars head coach, Edith Agoye insists the Oluyole Warriors will set out to defend their Dapo Abiodun Preseason title as this year’s edition kicks off on Tuesday (Today) at the Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode.
“The feeling as the tournament champions is great, we had a good tournament last year and it showed us the level that we are. We took the form into the season and we did well in the season before the pandemic outbreak. We want to replicate what we did last season in the tournament.
“Ijebu-ode community should expect a vintage Shooting Stars, a team that is playing in the NNL but deserves to be in the NPFL. We hope our performance in the preseason tournament and the season proper will help us take the club back to the top flight.”
