Charity Cup: FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Rangers ignite oriental flames in Abuja

Charity Cup: FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Rangers ignite oriental flames in Abuja

It promises to be an explosive match inside the main bowl of the Abuja National Stadium, as two teams from the South/East geo-political zone - Nigerian Federation Cup champions, FC Ifeanyi Ubah and the League champions, Enugu Rangers - clash in a Charity Cup fixture to usher in the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League(NPFL).

The match which holds on Wednesday, January 11, is historically significant to the teams as it is the first oriental derby of the season holding outside the eastern part of the country.

Rangers will represent the country in this year’s CAF Champions League while FC Ifeanyi Ubah will feature in the CAF Confederation Cup by virtue of their Federation Cup triumph.

It's the traditional curtain raiser for the season and as such, expects to see both sides field a star-studded line-up filled with new and quality signings.
