The Creative Championship Cup.

Into our final group game of the Championship Cup, we go up against Broad City in a bid to secure a spot in the semifinals of the competition.


Broad City kicked off their campaign at the cup game with a win and continued with another win in their second getting them to six (6) points in the group.
The Broad boys couldn't get at a point to get them in a secured place after losing their third game.


After a long week for the team playing in different competitions, we've gotten to another deciding moment that can be in our control. A point is all we need to secure a passage through the group into the last four of the league cup competition of the TCC.
Our job is not yet done for 2021 until that is settled. to put up a big show as the game is also our final official match of the calendar year and we want to do this in the very best way we can by securing our spot.
Our last game in the Lagos FA Cup has shown so much quality, character and tenacity the team is made up of and with the confidence within the group, we'll be raring to go for this one.


The Blues are top of the log in the group with seven (7) points with Broad City on six (6) and winning a point off the game gets us qualified.
Broad City will be looking to avoid a defeat as they are strongly in it going into the game and there is all to play for from both sides.


The kick-off is at 9 am at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne on Friday 17th.
