Excitement In The Air As Opi League Set To Kick-off December 26
By Amaechi Agbo
It is one of the oldest grassroots community league in Nsukka geopolitical zone. It is among the pacesetters in Enugu state football.
The Opi League, is also called Eze Arinze Unity Cup. Opi League has metamorphosed into one of the brightest community leagues in Enugu state. a brand that has outlived its pioneer founder and enthroned unity among opi people.
As has been the tradition, the annual league will as always kick-off on the 26th of December, 2019. A member of the organising committee told Bestchoicesports.com.g that every arrangement including registration by clubs is being perfected ahead of the kick-off date.
Established since over 25 years ago, the league has produced reputable players both active and retired in not just in Opi but including but not limited to Enugu State.
Instituted by Chief Eze Arinze of blessed memory, Chief Emmanuel Ogwu (Ochi War) took over to see that the legacy of the Mr Arinze did not halt. He pioneered the sponsorship of the league until he too joined his ancestors leaving the cudgel in the hand of former Secretary to Enugu State Government, Dr Dan Shere to navigate. Since 1999, Dr Dan Shere has personally sponsored the Opi League to the admiration of many.
Expectedly this year’s edition of Opi League/Eze Arinze Unity Cup promises to be more exciting.
Bestchoicesports.com.ng scooped that plans have been concluded to increase the prize money to a substantial amount.
Details of the new prize will be made available in our subsequent COUNTDOWN TO 2019 OPI League. Do not miss it.
