The fifth edition of the annual Zenith Bank Delta Principals’ Cup for secondary schools in the state which couldn’t hold in 2020 due to the outbreak of the coronaviru­s pandemic will resume in September.

According to the organisers, the competitio­n is scheduled to run from Tuesday, September 28 to Thursday, November 25, 2021.

The kickoff for this year’s edition will be on October 7 at St. Patricks’ College, in Asaba.

The third place match and the final billed for November 25, will be held at the Stephen Keshi Ultra-Modern Stadium, Asaba.

It would be recalled that School of Commerce Warri emerged winners of the 2019 Zenith Bank/Delta Principals’

Cup after defeating Zappa Mixed School, Asaba 2-1.

Meanwhile, the management of Zenith Bank has expressed its joy in contributi­ng to the expected success of the country’s basketball teams at the fast approachin­g Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Zenith Bank alongside other banks in the country, Access Bank and GTB donated $200,000 to the two basketball teams, D’Tigers and D’Tigress for their Olympic Games preparatio­n. According to the MD/CEO of Zenith Bank, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, the Bank’s involvemen­t in supporting basketball in the country has been for a long time.

He said “Zenith Bank has been sponsoring the women’s basketball league for so many years now, so helping to prepare the teams for the Olympics is a thing of joy for us.”
