There will be two finals for the U-20 and U-15 respectively. 

Tagged Dr D K Olukoya Dominion Cup, the event resumed a few days ago after it was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent ban on contact sports by the federal government of Nigeria, which has since been lifted.

Aside from monetary incentives, teams will also go home with giant trophies and medals. 

Recall that Dr Olukoya is the sole financier of MFM Football Club and MFM Women Basketball Club, who play in the Nigeria premier leagues and have represented Nigeria on the continent. 

Expected at the event are Nigeria Football Federation Big wigs, ex-Super Eagles players, and football agents.
