The Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) has picked UNILORIN as venue for this year’s Super Cup billed to hold from November 19 to 29.
The NVBF League Management Committee (LMC) said the top four men and women teams in the elite class and division one would compete for the Super Cup.
LMC chairman, Professor Olatunde Morakinyo, noted the NVBF’s decision to hold the Super Cup this year is to ensure players participate in a competitive tournament to keep them in top form ahead of future competitions.
According to the LMC boss, when the PTF lifted the ban on contact sports, the federation decided to create a platform to keep volleyball players active and also put them in the right frame of mind ahead of the Edo 2020 National Sports Festival.
“I am glad to announce that this year we are going to host the Super Cup instead of the Premier League and Division One league. The top four teams in the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League and National Division One League will converge on Ilorin for the competition.”
The 16 men and women teams in the Super Cup are Nigeria Customs Service, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC), Kano Pillars, Nigeria Police Force, Sunshine Spikers, COAS Spikers, Offa Volleyball Club and Nigeria Correctional Service (Men’s team),
Nigeria Immigration Service, COAS Spikers, Kada Emeralds, Nigeria Police Force, Benue Queens and Heartland of Owerri (women’s team), among others.
