His Royal Majesty of Igandoland, Oba Lasis Gbadamosi, and other invited guests are expected to grace the opening match of the maiden Ever Increasing football festival, which kicks off on Saturday at the Igando Football Playground, Alimosho, Lagos.
Sixteen teams are taking part in the two week-football festival.
The opening match will be played between SS Lazio of Idimu and Toco FC of Isheri.
Chairman, Organising Committee, Sulaiman Gbadamosi, said the opening match will be colourful as all the invited guests have promised to grace the event.
The cup donor, Pastor Taiwo Olayemi, said that the tourney is being organised to win soul for Christ and charged the players to rededicate themselves to God during the tournament.
“Nowadays, churches are coming up with a lot of sporting programmes to keep our youth busy. Ever Increasing Anointing Ministry Church is also contributing its own quota to football development in Lagos State,” he said.
Pastor Olayemi urged the participating teams to abide by the rules governing the game and prayed for a violent-free competition.
