The competitions was called Youth Unity Competition and was held May through June across the Local Governments of Yagba Federal Constituency, which comprised of Mopa, Amuo, Yagba East and Yagba West. There were more than 15 teams that participated in the competition.

They then went on to qualify for the finals and they won against Success Stars of Isanlu. which is a very experienced and fit team. This is the first major trophy award won by Vessels after eight years of existence. In addition Vessels Team was given the Most Disciplined Team Award.

This experience has created awareness for our sports outreach program. Many football players have since signed up to join the Vessels team some which are even M*slims. We are excited about our team and their success and we give God all the glory. Support our team and our sports outreach program by clicking the following link.
