Kano Pillars and Nigeria Customs Service will lock go against each other in the men’s final of the ongoing Nigeria Volleyball SuperCup today at the University of Ilorin, Kwara State.

Kano Pillars outclassed Nigeria Security Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) 3-1 (19-25, 27-25, 27-25, 26-24) in the first semifinals of the men’s event while Nigeria Customs Service spanked Sunshine Spikers 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 27-25) in the men’s second semifinal event.

Kano Pillars head coach, Musa Babamusa said his only obstacle to the Super Cup trophy was the NSCDC team and praised his players for playing according to instructions and the reward of tactical discipline was achieved.

“First and foremost, I want to give glory to Almighty God for giving my team this grace to play this game. When we came here, I told you that my mission is to take this trophy and God scaled me through the hurdles of the NSCDC team; they are the obstacle I have to the trophy here in Ilorin,” Babamusa said.

“The game plan we deployed was simple; we know them very well and we came out to beat them. I know my boys so I do not need to shout on my boys during the game; whatever we need to do, I do it at home during training sessions.’

“One thing that I am happy for is that my boys always play according to instructions; yes they are young players and sometimes experience matters but I thank God my boys recovered.

“The truth is that we have outclassed the NSCDC team in the past and we will continue to outclass them. I am here to take the trophy and nothing will stop me.”

Meanwhile, last year’s league champions, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) will rekindle their rivalry with Nigeria Customs Service as they compete in the women’s final.

The third-place matches will be between Kada Emeralds and COAS Spikers in the women’s category while Sunshine Spikers and NSCDC will battle for third place in the men’s category.
