Remo Stars, the reigning champions of the Optima Energy Gold Cup, have taken the difficult decision to withdraw from this year’s edition due to time constraints.
The abrupt withdrawal is a result of their demanding schedule to prepare for the CAF Champions League’s preliminary 1st leg clash against Ghana’s Medeama SC in Cape Coast.
As one of Nigeria’s representatives in the CAF Champions League preliminary rounds, Remo Stars’ choice to withdraw is a testament to their commitment to elevate Nigerian football on the continental stage. While this decision may inconvenience the participating teams and their fans in the 11th edition of the tournament, it’s driven by the pursuit of success in the Champions League.
The club expressed their regrets for any inconvenience caused and tournament organisers extended their best wishes to the Sky Blue Stars as they embark on their journey in the Champions League.
