NFF sanctions Gateway FC, orders replay against ABS

The Organising and Disciplinary Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation has fined Gateway United Football Club of Abeokuta one million naira for their refusal to play their Nigeria National League match day 14 away tie against ABS Ilorin on Sunday

The Organising and Disciplinary Committee also ordered that the botched match should be replayed at the same Kwara State Stadium, Ilorin on Wednesday November 9 behind closed doors.

Rising from their meeting in Abuja on Thursday, the committee, headed by former NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu, reprimanded the home team, ABS Ilorin, for arbitrarily increasing the ticket fee to between N10, 000 and N15, 000.

The winner of the match will pick the promotion ticket from the NNL B2 for a place in next year’s Nigeria Professional Football League.
