It will be fun and games in Abuja from Friday, when the maiden Abuja Soccer Tournament under the auspices of the FCT Football Association rolls out at the Jabi Lake Park.
Four teams will feature in the inaugural tournament, namely from Kebbi, Kwara, Badagry and the host team, who have been in training for the past two weeks.
The final of the invitational competition will be on Sunday at the same venue.
FCT FA chairman Mouktar Adam Mohammed disclosed that there will be several colourful side attractions during the tournament from music, dance and other types of entertainment.
“It will be fun and games, a funfare for all the family,” he promised.
This is part of a bold move to revive beach soccer in the FCT.
This past week, organisers of the tournament cleaned up the scenic Jabi Lake Park in readiness for the big event.
