The final of this year’s edition of the Delta State Principals’ Cup has been fixed for April 1 and venue is the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
Incidentally, this venue has hosted international matches in recent time. The Super Eagles defeated Seychelles 3-1on Friday at the arena and today, the U-23 team will tackle Libya in an AFCON qualifier second led tie.
