Maziya Sports and Recreation Club have won the 69th President’s Cup 2023 by defeating Club Eagles 2-0 in the final at Galolhu National Stadium on Tuesday. Ibrahim Aisam scored both goals in the game with each coming in either side of the break.

This marks the second President’s Cup victory for Maziya, who won their first title after beating New Radiant Sports Club in the final in 2015.

Club Eagles suffered a setback when one of their key defenders, Abdulla Haneef (Benjo), sustained an injury and had to be replaced by Ibrahim Maisaan (Mai), who played as a right-back.

The match was attended by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, who was accompanied by President of the Football Association of Maldives (FAM) Bassam Adeel Jaleel. At the closing ceremony, Jaleel presented the captain of the Maldivian National Football Team with the home jersey kit for the upcoming SAFF Championship Tournament 2023.
