Bet9ja draws done, heavyweight clubs set to clash in Benin City

By Daily Sports on September 20, 2018

The 4th edition of the Bet9ja Football competition will kick off on Saturday, 29th September 2018. 

In a colorful draws ceremony held on Wednesday afternoon at the Bet9ja image shop opposite the University of Benin main gate, the participating grassroots clubs got to know which teams they will be facing in the preliminary stage of the competition. 

The toughest looking group is Group C that has 2016 Edo FA Cup champions Ine Stars up against one of Benin City's finest youth clubs Rockers FC which has a collection of young players, some of whom are well decorated in national youth competitions (like the Shell Cup), as well as Yak Sports which is said to be sponsored by ex-Super Eagles attacker Yakubu Aiyegbeni. 

Completing the group are little know Fame FC. 

One of Nigeria's most successful grassroots clubs,  in terms of trophies won and (very vitally) players produced for national teams and European clubs,  BJ Foundation are in group B where they will be facing a very ambitious team Clibbers FC owned by the well-liked club chairman Nathaniel Gueye who is regarded as a true gentleman and a motivator of men. 

Edo State 2016 League champions Benin Warriors (just back from a second round finish at the David Ejoor National football tournament in Ughelli) will lock horns with Yak's other team in the tournament. 

Yak have a very large pool of quality players and they have registered two sets of teams, such is their confidence in the quality of both squads. 

In group A defending champions Uniben Royals are  scheduled to meet Mission Side, a team that impressed in the last FA Cup  with powerful and skillful players. 

The Bet9ja tournament is high in the fixture list of tournaments in Edo state, given the high prize money on offer for winners, the good organization of the competition and the prestige value for grassroots clubs who always want to show they are the best. 

Meanwhile the Edo state youth League is kicking off this weekend in Benin City on Saturday 22nd September. Some of these teams registered for the Bet9ja tournament are participating in the state League, and organizers of the bet9ja Football competition are going to find a way to ensure that fixtures do not clash with those of the state league.
