The National Council of Sports has officially endorsed the request made by the Edo State Government to change the 20th National Sports Festival from Benin 2020 to Edo 2020.
Although it was initially awarded as Benin 2020 when Edo beat Delta, Cross-River and Kaduna to win host right.
The change became necessary because the new name will give the entire Edo State indigene a sense of belonging.
The renaming took place at the Edo Heritage Hotel in Benin City between Stake holders of the event.
The games have also been scheduled to run between March 20th-April 3rd 2020.
