Ijebu-Ode will come alive with top class grassroots football excitements as the 2019 Sabo Ilupeju Molode (SIM) fans league kicks off in December.
The SIM, organized by Sole Adewunmi, started in 2016 with six teams; Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona, Liverpool, and an All-star team, but unfortunately, Liverpool fans didn’t show up.
Manchester United bought their slot, and it has since improved, with Mr Ademola Ogunbanjo, a 2018 gubernatorial candidate in Ogun State, sponsoring the last edition.
Chelsea Fc fans emerged champions of the first edition of the SIM fans league, when they edge United fans on penalty shootouts.
They retained the title in 2017, securing a 2-1 victory against the Red Devils.
Things got better last year when an official trophy was introduced, with Molode fc beating Barcelona in the final to emerge as winners.
This year’s edition promises to be exciting and thrilling, and it will interesting to see if Molode can successfully defend their title.
The competition will be played at Moslem Primary School, Sabo, Ijebu-Ode.
