Enugu State Government will host Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Enugu Rangers on Friday at the Government House in Enugu in appreciation of the team’s league triumph in the just concluded season.

The Flying Antelopes outclassed El Kanemi Warriors 4-0 to win the competition for the first time in 32 years.

“The Enugu Government has told us that the grand reception will hold on Friday," media officer Foster Chime said.

"It ought to have taken place on Tuesday but Friday is now the new date billed for it. We are anxiously waiting for the day. The Saturday victory parade went well and even though we had few hitches we still thank God for how it ended.”
