Umueri Football Competition kicks off


The much awaited Umueri annual football league has kicked off in style. This year event is been singlehandedly sponsored by a great Philantropist, Mr. Chinedu Edozieuno -the current President General of Umueri National Youth Forum (UNYF) who doubles as Chairman Chinnos Group Ltd. The first match of the tournament kicked off on 25th December 2011 at St Immanuel Anglican Church Umuatuolu-Umueri with an entertaining but colorful match between Ivite Umueri Branch FC & Portharcourt Branch FC. Though the match ended on goalless score but the both teams cheered by the respective fans made the match a momorable one.


The next day been 26th December 2011 saw great football artistries as Otuocha Branch FC thrashed the tournament favorite, Lagos Branch FC with two (2) goals to nill. The Two goals were scored in the first half, while the second half witnessed several missed chances by the two teams. The next match, Ikenga Umueri Branch FC vs Awka Branch FC would be played later today evening. It’s expected to be an explosive encounter due to the teams been paraded by the both teams. Mr. Sylvester Ifeanacho, one of the Organizers of the tournament urged all Youths to participate to cheer the teams as it’s a sort of talent hunt for future footballers.


It will be recalled that some branches were unable to participate in this year tournament due to one problem or the other. The notably absentees in this year tournament include Onitsha Branch FC and Nneyi branch FC. Whereas Onitsha who had an miserable performance during the last year tournament opted out of the Competition due to financial related reasons, Nneyi Branch of the Youth Organization failed to registered due to the pro-longed crisis brewing in the Youth forum. A reliable source informed us that the current executives are doing everything to ensure that all branches will participate in 2012 tournament.
