The highly anticipated final of the NLO Cup is on the horizon in Abuja, as the contenders have been confirmed, setting the stage for a fierce showdown between Tudun Wada and Palm Syrup.

Tudun Wada secured their spot in the final by overcoming Green Lock FC in a thrilling semifinal clash at The Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano, ending with a 3-1 victory.

In the second half, after a goalless first period, Tudun Wada initiated the scoring as Peter Michael netted a well-taken penalty in the 57th minute. The momentum continued, with Yusuf Mohammed adding another goal from the spot just three minutes later.

Green Lock FC staged a mini-resurgence, capitalizing on a defensive lapse by Tudun Wada. Philip Onyedika found the back of the net in the 62nd minute after a pass from Damilola Adeyeye.

However, Tudun Wada sealed their place in the finals with a superb finish by Mubarak Sanni in the 88th minute, securing a 3-1 victory and setting the stage for a compelling championship match.

Having previously triumphed in the inaugural NLO Super Cup at the Uboma Secondary School Stadium Complex, Imo State, Tudun Wada is poised for another shot at glory in the third division Cup sponsored by telecommunications giant MTN and FirstCentral Credit Bureau.

Meanwhile, Kun Khalifa FC will square off against Green Lock FC for the bronze medal in the 3rd-place game at the Bwari Stadium, Abuja. The NLO Secretariat has directed that the final and the third-place match will take place on Saturday, December 9, 2023, in what promises to be a day filled with football excitement.
