The Flying Antelopes have announced a date that they will show off their new silverware around the city of Enugu

Newly crowned Federation Cup winners Enugu Rangers will hold a victory parade on the streets of Enugu on November 16 after clinching their sixth title after a 4-2 win on penalties over Kano Pillars.

It will be the second victory parade for the Flying Antelopes in three years after celebrating the Nigeria Professional Football League diadem for the first time in 32 years in 2016.

An open-top bus will give fans the chance to join in the celebrations with the players when the parade gets underway, with just six days to the Super Cup at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.

The Enugu fans will be looking forward to a double celebration as their side look to add another trophy to their domestic title when they take on league kings Lobi Stars on November 21.

With fans pouring demands for a date to hold a parade, the club has bowed to their requests, announcing the day which will be followed by a grand reception on November 17.

By virtue of winning the Federation Cup, Gbenga Ogunbote's men will be Nigeria's sole representative in next year's Caf Confederation Cup.
