Exciting times are here indeed for students in the city of Ibadan as the premier varsity teams in the same city are set to clash in the ongoing HiFL® league. The derby between LCU Gladiators and UI Pioneers is slated for Wednesday, 10 July at the University of Ibadan sports complex by 4 pm.
In a country where the football is as vital to living as oxygen, Nigerian youths are indeed set for a festival of sports and excitement as the derby takes centre stage in the ongoing 2019 season. This derby between LCU Gladiators and UI Pioneers indeed promises to be a spicy and exciting affair as these are the two largest institutions located in the urban city of Ibadan.
History, prestige and glory will be on the line as the neighbours separated by a mere 35 minutes go to battle. Beyond bragging rights, a chance to book their spot in the last 16 of the tournament all adds to make the tie a dicey one, indeed the city of Ibadan will be split in half as the titans do battle.
HiFL® is organised in partnership with the Nigerian University Games Association (NUGA). The league is proudly sponsored by Stanbic IBTC, Premier Cool and Indomie Nigeria.
