The Director, organizing in Enugu State Ministry of Youth & Sports, Bonny Onovo, revealed this in an exclusive chat, on Tuesday.

 He said that the State Executive Council will trade tackles with the Local Government Chairmen in the opening encounter of the tournament.

Enugu State Government sponsors the tournament with Gov. Peter Mbah donating the giant trophy that will be competed for by the registered teams, as Jan. 28, 2024, has been picked for the championship-deciding match.

I thank the state governor for making approvals to kick start the yearly tournament just as we cannot forget the positive roles played by the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Barr.
