Due to the current position of Yobe Desert Stars Football Club of Damaturu in the Nigeria Professional Football League standings, the management of the club has given the technical crew six matches ultimatum ahead of the resumption of the league.
Speaking during the management weekly meeting and made available to the Deserts Machine Media, Managing Director of the club Mallam Abdulrahaman Ago said that “we decided to give the technical crew the ultimatum for the team to remain in the Nigeria football elite league this season, because we cannot play one season in the Nigeria Professional Football League and go back to the second division”.

“As far as I am concern, we have some experience and best legs in the league, couple with our young talented squad who are ready to play their heart out on the field,” he concluded.
Yobe Deserts Stars will host Heartland FC of Owerri in Damaturu on the 18th of July for the matchday 25 of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
