Having been pitched alongside familiar foes in Division C1 of the 2019 Nationwide League One, Akure City FC will file out against newbies OSOPADEC FC of Okiti-Pupa in what promises to be an exciting encounter on May 25, the opening day of the new season.

Unfortunately they lost out of qualifying for the playoffs in controversial circumstances to their Kwara United Feeder Team opponents on the last day of the campaign.

Speaking in an exclusive chat the Chief Coach of Akure City Banjo Adepoju said although the fixture pitched them alongside their arch rivals it will only bring out the best in the team as they target to secure the only playoff ticket in the group.

Also speaking the chairman of the club Kingsley Ossai, aka Kaycee, said the team has been motivated for more achievements this season, which was evident with the way they qualified for the state FA Cup final .

Pacesetters FC of Ibadan and Ajiroba Onni FC of Ile-Ife complete the teams in Division C1.
