During 77th Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Lagos, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Thursday approved the replay of the quarterfinals of the Aiteo Cup, as well as stating that Heartland FC have already qualified for the semifinal after beating Katsina United in the quarterfinal on penalties.

"After listening to the presentation of the 2nd Vice President/Chairman, LMC on the challenges that beleaguered this year’s AITEO Cup competition, the Board adopted resolutions reached at the meeting of the NFF with the owners of Clubs that reached the men’s quarter-finals that the competition reboot at that stage and the Clubs be refunded their expenses for travelling for last-eight matches that did not take place.

However, Heartland FC, who defeated Katsina FC in their quarter-final game in Ilorin, are already through to the semi-finals.

It was agreed that the competition (men’s version) restarts after the NFF Annual General Assembly of Thursday, 18th August 2022, with the key objective of providing considerable mileage for sponsors, AITEO."
