The organisers of Nigeria’s foremost Pre-season Tournament ‘Gold Cup’, have concluded arrangements to stage the 7th edition of the competition in Ilorin, Kwara State capital.
The tournament which has since been named after its life patron, late Chief Taiwo Joseph Ogunjobi would take place next month.
Several states have been understandably jostling for the hosting right of the tournament which was last held in Akure, Ondo State.
Oyo State, Ogun State, Osun State, Ondo State and a North Central state Kwara State were amongst the top contenders willing to host the much talked about soccer fiesta.
Sunshine Stars are the Defending Champions of the first preseason tournament in Nigeria.
