NPFL: LMC lifts ban on Ilorin, Offa Stadia

Published:

The League Management Company (LMC) has lifted its earlier ban clamped on the Ilorin Township Stadium for hosting NPFL matches in the 2021-2022 season.

This was contained in a letter dated December 14, 2021 and addressed to Kwara United, the league body said it was satisfied with the emergency facelift that has been given to the stadium.

The LMC body also said it has been notified of the ‘standardisation’ work that was to begin on Offa Satellite Stadium, thus granting a provisional approval for its use for the league matches when the Ilorin stadium underwent repairs that would include complete change of its synthetic pitch.

The LMC, in the letter signed by its COO Salihu Abubakar and titled ‘Re: Certification of Stadia: Kwara Township Stadium, Ilorin’, stated, “We have noted the amount of emergency work done to address the lapses enumerated.

“Also, we note that the Kwara State Government has immediately awarded the contract for replacement of the pitch as well as that of the satellite stadium in Offa which will serve as an alternative venue when work starts on the Ilorin stadium. We envisage all these processes will be concluded within the 1st quarter of 2022 and before the conclusion of first round matches.

“Consequently, a provisional approval is hereby granted for Kwara Township Stadium to host your matches within the framework of the NPFL 2021/2022 season.

“We will continue to monitor the stadium as well as others to ensure that standards are met and maintained.”
