NFF announce Federation Cup dates

28 March 2014, 12:40

Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced that the 2014 Federation Cup will commence with the State preliminaries on 5 April.

This information was contained in a statement made available by NFF official Ruth David.

The State finals are scheduled for 4 May across the federation, while the play-off matches will be held on 14 and 15 May.

The draw for the National finals will take place in Abuja on 29 May.

David, however, warned that the deadline for the submission of 2014 Federation Cup licenses remains 31 March.

"Late submission of licenses is allowed from 1st April - 11th April, 2014 and will attract a fine of N300,000 by the defaulting club(s)," David said.

According to the timetable for this year's competition, the Round of 64 matches will be staged across 32 centres between 2 and 3 July, with the Round of 32 matches taking place a week later. The Round of 16 games will be played between 16 and 17 July.

The quarter-finals are slated for 23 July, with the semi-finals to follow on 30 July while the grand finale of this year's Federation Cup has been scheduled for 3 August.
