The last match in the Rookie round would be the battle between Gbagada Football Club and Eko Akete Football Club at 3:30 PM. According to Dotun Coker, Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Lagos FA, all matches for this year’s edition of the Winners Golden Bet-sponsored Lagos FA Cup will hold at the ultra-modern Agege Staduim, Agege.
He informed that lots of new innovations are being package for this year’s edition of the FA Cup, revealing that as stated by the chairman of the Lagos State FA, Seyi Akinwunmi, all the winners of the round of rookies games will get a cash reward of N15,000 courtesy of the FA Chairman among other packages ahead of the finals. Coker charged all the clubs taking part in this year’s Championship to maintain high level of discipline, saying the FA will not condone any act that would bring the game into disrepute.

“We at Lagos FA has done our homework well by ensuring that all the clubs taking part in this Lagos FA Cup are abreast of the rules governing the competition, hence the reason for the seminar organised by the FA on the FA Cup for the clubs taking part in this year’s edition. So they should try to follow the regulations governing the championship,” he noted.
