The bodies in charge of the 1st Ogunjobi Memorial Cup began an assessment of the facilities designated for the competition yesterday in Oshogbo.
Otunba Dele Ajayi, the head of the Ondo State FA, headed a powerful team that toured possible match locations, designated hotels, and medical facilities as soon as it arrived in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State.
Co-chairman of the main organizing committee, Dele Ajayi expressed optimism about a spectacular tournament that was set to live up to its billing in a press conference after the one-day inspection tour.
“We have got an idea of the progress level of the tournament organisation after going round to check on the available facilities.
“What we have seen at these facilities were exact things the LOC provided the MOC in their reports.
“So, we have taken key decisions as regards accommodations feeding and match centres. The LOC has done a good job and we are going to have a befitting championship.
“Football fans in the Southwest should expect the best because the states will present their best U-15 teams for the competition. Camping is ongoing and you know our zone leads by example.”
The football competition will take place from August 16 to August 21 while the award ceremony will take place the evening of the final.
Eight teams have been approved by the main organizing committee for the inaugural Western Nigeria Football Forum/Late Taiwo Ogunjobi U-15 Memorial Cup and Award Ceremony
