The stage is set for the highly anticipated 3rd edition of the Betsy Obaseki Football Tournament, with organisers announcing the kickoff date as October 19, 2023. This women preseason soccer fiesta is set to take place in the vibrant city of Benin, Edo State. Excitement is building among players, fans, and football enthusiasts alike.

The Chairman of the Edo State Sports Commission, Olympian Yussuf Alli, who happens to be the Chairman of the Main Organising Committee (MOC) for the tournament, made the official announcement during the inauguration of the various subcommittees.

Originally scheduled to commence this month, the Betsy Obaseki Football Tournament was rescheduled to align with the Nigerian Women Football League's pre-season schedule. The event will now take place from October 19th to October 29th. This strategic move allows the tournament to serve its intended purpose while maximizing media coverage and avoiding clashes with other major sporting events.

In recognition of its significance, FIFA has formally acknowledged the tournament as one of the best pre-season events in the country. This recognition has further fueled the determination of the Edo State Sports Commission and the organizing committee to surpass previous successes and elevate the tournament to even greater heights.

Olympian Alli emphasized the importance of hosting a top-notch tournament that upholds the passion and vision of the First Lady of Edo State. By keeping the event independent of government sponsorship, the committee aims to ensure the longevity and growth of the tournament beyond any office term.

With a lineup of dedicated subcommittees, such as Accommodation/Ceremonial/Protocol, Marketing and Sponsorship, Media and Communications, Medical, Technical, Security, and Secretariat, the organizing team is poised for success.

Speaking on behalf of the subcommittees, Peter Okonkwo, Head of Secretariat and member of the media subcommittee, expressed gratitude to the Chairman of the Edo State Sports Commission for the opportunity to serve. He assured fans and participants that the committee's past experience and expertise would result in an even more successful organization of the tournament.
