Katsina United, Akwa United get new date for Matchday 11
The League Management Company (LMC) on Tuesday afternoon approved request from Akwa United for a 24-hour shift in their rescheduled Matchday 11 fixture against Katsina United.
The match earlier rescheduled from March 4 to March 28 will now hold on March 29. Consequently, the Matchday 15 fixture between Nasarawa United and Katsina United scheduled for April 1 will now hold on April 2.
LMC Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar who communicated the decisions said the 24-hour difference was to accommodate travel difficulties involving the clubs.
Akwa United are competing in the CAF Confederation Cup and have seen some of their fixtures rescheduled due to continental travel challenges.
Abubakar said all other fixtures remain as scheduled. Plateau United and MFM FC, campaigning in the CAF Champions League would not be part of the regular Matchday 13 fixtures that holds on Sunday across eight other venues.
Plateau United are home to a Tunisian side while MFM travel to Algeria for the return leg of their fixture.
