The play-off matches of the 2016 male Federation Cup competition will take place on Saturday and Sunday across the country, a Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) official has said.

Emmanuel Adesanya, Head of NFF’s Federation Cup Unit, told newsmen in Abuja that 20 clubs would participate in the competition’s play-off round.

The round involves the competition’s rookies, usually the non-league clubs, which have qualified for the national finals.

They had qualified by virtue of reaching the final of the competition in the various states.

“While nine of the matches will come up on Saturday, the 10th match which is between Katsina United Junior FC and Niger Tornadoes Feeders will come up on Sunday in Kaduna,” Adesanya said.
