Former Super Eagles captain and chairman of Delta Football Association, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha will today lead other officials of the State FA on a road show round major streets in Warri to sensitise the fans ahead of the Federations Cup final billed for tomorrow at the Warri City Stadium.

The 16th edition of the Federations Cup will be between God’s Time FC and J. Atete FC, while the third place match will be between Warri Wolves and Bobbies United.

Secretary of Delta FA, Friday Onothoja said yesterday that Okocha who is passionate about the Federations Cup final, would embark on the road show as his first official assignment in office to give the sponsor, Ecobank, the goodwill it deserves.

Ecobank has been sponsoring the competition for the past fifteen years.

In preparation for tomorrow’s final, Okocha presented Ecobank branded jerseys to the four teams yesterday at the boardroom of Warri City Stadium.

Onothoja said that tomorrow’s final would be highly entertaining, as the two finalists, God’s Time FC and J. Atete FC have large supporters based in Warri.

Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan will be the special guest of honour in the grand finale, and is expected to lead other top government officials as well as management and staff of the sponsor, Ecobank.

It would be recalled that God’s Time FC stopped CAF Confederations Cup campaigner, Warri Wolves FC in penalty shootout in the semifinal, while J. Atete FC booked their final ticket by beating Bobbies United.
