Celebration as FC Ifeanyi Ubah Wins the 2016 Federation Cup


On Sunday, FC Ifeanyi Ubah made history as it won the Nigeria Feder­ation Cup for the first time. FC Ifeanyi Ubah, found­ed in 2015, also became the youngest club to win the Ni­gerian Federation Cup – after barely two years in existence.
The Anambra Warriors, as they are also called, achieved this enviable feat at the expense of Nasarawa United whom they defeated 5-4 on a penalty shoot-out in the tension-soaked final match played at the Teslim Ba­logun Stadium, Lagos.
The Anambra State Gover­nor, Chief Willie Obiano, was quick to commend the Club for the great honour it has brought to the state and to Ndi Anam­bra as a whole.
The highly entertaining encounter saw both teams ap­proach the game with caution as they avoided making any careless mistakes that could cost them the match.
After making history yesterday as the youngest football club in Ni­geria to win a continental ticket, the Proprietor of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, told its fans that the club will put up a good rep­resentation in the CAF Confeder­ations Cup.
Speaking after he received the Federation Cup trophy, an elated Ubah insisted that he is yet to meet his target with the club, stressing that the team will now concentrate on proving to be a worthy ambassa­dor of the country in African foot­ball.
He noted that the Nnewi-based club will re-position to battle for the challenges of playing at the conti­nental level.
