Felix Obada (born November 3, 1989 in Warri, Nigeria) is a Nigerian football (soccer) midfielder who currently plays for Moroka Swallows in the South African Premier Soccer League.[2]


Obada began his career on youthside with Invincible Leopard and was in 2006 scouted by Kwara United. After one successful year with Kwara United was transferred to Thanda Royal Zulu.[3]

In 2008 the Nigerian winger was eyed by Malmö FF. The Swedish top club offered trials for Obada and his companion Bernard Parker. The trial took place for two weeks and both impressed according to Bengt Madsen.[4] This season so far at TRZ has participated in 4 games for the club, scoring 1 "thunderous" goal and signed on 18 July 2009 for Maritzburg United.[5]
