Abuja Metro FC Count Positives from AMAC Unity Cup

History was made at Abuja metro FC when we played our first ever match, while participating in the AMAC Football Coaches Council Unity Cup. The competition which is used to prepare Abuja-based teams for league and cup competitions afforded us the opportunity to blood our freshly assembled squad.

Competing in Group A, our very first match on 4th March 2019 produced our first ever goal, with Sadiq Abubakar Shaibu netting a classy opener in the 1-1 draw with FC Liberty. However, we would then go on to lose the remaining two matches, falling 2-0 to Democrats FC and then 3-2 to Winner Academy.

We may have finished bottom of the group, but the experience and exposure gained from the competition are not lost on the team. The squad has been given a break for a couple of days, after which training resumes.

Highlights of the matches are available on our YouTube channel –
