All road will this weekend lead to Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital for the 3rd edition of Udom Emmanuel U-17 Football Championship.
Appropriately christened “UDOM VICTORY TOURNAMENT”, the age-grade soccer fiesta which holds all the promises of football excellence, aside being a means of thanking God for the 2nd term victory of His Excellency Governor Udom Emmanuel, is also a talent-hunrting initiative, as it offers a veritable platform for the discovery of budding football talents within and outside the State.
Encouraged by the huge degree of successes recorded at the previous editions, and inspired by the visionary realistic DAKKADA philosophy as espoused by Governor Udom Emmanuel, the championship which has a lot of attractive packages for participating teams, is scheduled to commence on the 14th to 28th September, 2019 at various centres across the State.
The draws ceremony has been scheduled to hold on the 14th September 2019 at Uniuyo mini stadium by 10:am. To this end, participating teams are enjoined to arrive Uyo on or before Saturday for accreditation and screening, as all necessary logistics for a successful championship has been put in place.
