The involvement of Calabar Rovers FC in this year’s semi-finals of the Federation Cup has occasioned a shift in date for some week 10 matches in the second-tier division, Nigerian National League (NNL).
This much has been disclosed by NNL media officer, Amar Ignis, who told megasportsarena.com that the week 10 matches in the southern conference will now hold this Tuesday in various venues.
Ignis disclosed that the games affected in this regard are those from Group B3, which will all now hold simultaneously, in accordance with a pre-championship agreement that all last weekend games will take place at the same time across the country, to avoid any likely instances of match fixing.
