RIFFA take on Manama tonight in the Super Football Cup 2019 at the Khalifa Sports City in Isa Town, starting at 6.30pm.
Bahrain Football Association (BFA) president Shaikh Ali bin Khalifa Al Khalifa hailed Bapco for sponsoring the event and commended the company’s unwavering support to youth and sports sectors.
He praised the support of Bapco chairman Dr Dawood Nassif to BFA activities.
Meanwhile, Riffa and Brave Combat Federation and KHK MMA have entered into a new partnership.
This year’s Super Cup is different from previous editions as Riffa completed a double last season, capturing the League and the King’s Cup.
As the Super Cup marks the meeting of the League champions and the Cup champions, Manama Club, who were the runners-up in the Bahrain Premier League last season, were called upon to fill that void.
Riffa have enjoyed a perfect start to the season by qualifying to the second round of the Mohammed VI Cup, the Arab Champions Cup, with no goals conceded and scoring eight goals in three matches.
The Super Cup provides a perfect chance for Riffa to carry the tradition of winning trophies into the new season.
