The final of the Delta State Principals’ Cup for all secondary schools earlier billed for Friday November 26 now takes place on Tuesday November 30.
According to the Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, a new date for the Grand Finale of the 2021 edition of the Zenith Bank Delta Principals Cup Football Competition was fixed due to logistics reasons.
According to a statement by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr. Augustine Oghoro, the grand finale of the Principals Cup Football Competition will now take place on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at Stephen Keshi Ultramodern Stadium, Asaba.
The statement, however, regretted the inconveniences caused by the change in date because finalists are already eager to face one another in the final.
