Champions! Fidelity Bank emerge winner 2019 Nigeria Bankers Games

Fidelity Bank Plc has emerged best in the overall medal tables of the 2019 Nigeria Bankers Games (NBG) after beating UBA at the football competition held in Lagos on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

The match, however, lived up to its billing as it had everybody sitting on the edge of their seats.

According to a release e-signed by Ejike Ndiulo, Head, Corporate Communication, Fidelity Bank Plc., the Okonkwo tutored boys drew the first blood, converting from a well-taken throw-in.

The lead was however short-lived as the Tony Elumelu boys benefited from a defensive mix-up to score the equalizer.
