As part of the programmes for the 2016/17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season scheduled to get underway this weekend, the management of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football and Lagos State Football Association (LSFA) thought it wise to organise an exhibition game and a seminar for Lagos-based fans.

The team manager of the modest NPFL outfit, Sunday Ojieh spoke about the importance of the two-in-one event that will hold at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium on Thursday afternoon by 2pm.

"The exhibition match and the seminar for our fans is very important. The Lagos State Football Association led by Seyi Akinwunmi has been very magnanimous and supportive to us since our sojourn in the league.

"Just as we are planning to have a great and remarkable season, the LSFA saw the need with us to create an atmosphere of love, peace and harmony that will be devoid of hooliganism and hostility, where the fans of the team will come to the stadium and have evergreen experience without any form of violence irrespective of the outcome of the game, hence the need for the seminar and the exhibition match," the vibrant team manager told mountaintopfc.com.

The seminar will commence by 2pm while the exhibition match between two Lagos-based teams will kickoff by 3pm at the same venue.
