A total number of 95 clubs have been drawn for this year’s edition Winners Golden Bet/Lagos FA Cup.
Speaking at the press conference and draw ceremony held in Lagos on Thursday, the Vice Chairman, Lagos State Football Association, Otunba Tade Azeez, assured that the 2018/19 edition of the tournament promises to be bigger and better.
In his words: “I want to assure you that this year’s edition of the competition will be a success.
“We are also making plans to host the award night which we were unable to hold last year due to matters around the country’s football.
“So, the award of last year’s edition is intact and they will be awarded this time around.”
The President of the Nigeria Referees Association also assured that no team would be treated specially as the FA expects any team to win the championship.
On behalf of the sponsors, Peju Akinbiyi promised that they are ready to improve on the prize money for the top teams, just as she informed that teams will be kitted from the semi finalists state of the competition.
The competition is billed to kick off at the Agege Stadium on April 28.
