Pillars to lock Horns with Niger Tornadoes in 2019 Aiteo Cup Final


Last season’s Aiteo Cup runners up, Kano Pillars will play in this year’s final, where they face Niger Tornadoes for the elusive trophy.

Pillars qualified for their second finals – in consecutive seasons – following a 4-1 shoot out win over Calabar Rovers at the Aper Aku Stadium on Thursday.
While relegated Niger Tornadoes shocked league side Rivers United following a 2-1 win in the second semi-final at the Agege township Stadium in Lagos.
As a result, Tornadoes will now join Enugu Rangers as Nigeria’s representatives at next season’s CAF Confederation Cup, as Pillars have already qualified for Champions League – after they finished as runners up in the league.
Meanwhile the venue and date for the 2019 AITEO Cup final is yet to be decided by the Nigeria Football Federation.
