Former Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Rangers International FC will present their 2017/2018 squad to their supporters and the media today in Enugu.
The players and officials are also slated for a dinner with the executive Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, at the Government House Enugu, same day.
According to Scorenigeria.com.ng, the unveiling ceremony will take place at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.

“We expect the presence of all die-hard supporters of the club to see the quality of the new players that we have been able to assemble to defend the colours of Rangers.”
The Gbenga Ogunbote charges returned to Enugu on Monday from a two-week closed camping in Ijebu-ode.
