The club’s hierarchy, CSN learnt, are planning to celebrate their successful campaign in a big way with a trophy parade around major cities of Enugu to share the memories with the fans.
A grand reception is also planned for the next day at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, Enugu where the state government is expected to reward the players for their efforts.
The Coal City club, by virtue of lifting the Federation Cup, will represent Nigeria in the CAF Confederation Cup next year and will hope to become the first Nigerian club to win the competition.
