glamorous football tournament in the country.

The
2015 edition is not left out in terms of shocks, as Akwa United and Lobi Stars,
two teams that finished in the bottom half of the Nigeria Premier League table,
will battle it out in the Final.

The
NFF and the Lagos State Sports Commission have also announced that gates will
be free, and the sum of N200, 000 (Two Hundred Thousand naira) will be won via
a raffle draw.

Fans
coming to the arena have been told to expect a well-monitored situation with efficient
crowd control, alert security officers, friendly protocol officers and well marshalled
parking, all in a bid to make the Federation Cup experience worthwhile for all
present.
