HiFL Goes On Salah Break, To Settle Outstanding Protests

HiFL Goes On Salah Break, To Settle Outstanding Protests

The Higher Institution Football League has decided to go on two weeks break to allow players and officials to observe the Salah celebrations.

Speaking with our correspondent, the consultant to the league and the CEO of Green White Green Communication, Gara Gombe, said they have to give the players the opportunity to celebrate with their families.

The second leg of some of the matches were expected to come up on Wednesday August 22, with the matches already postponed.

“We are going on break for two weeks,” Gombe said.

“The break will afford the organisers and the technical committee to look into some of the protests by the teams.

“For example, we are having some schools accusing others of using machineries and we have to look through them and come up with a verdict before going to the next round.

“All the matches scheduled for Wednesday, in both the Coastal and Sahel zone will come up after the break.”

Some of the matches will see OAU Giants hosting UI Pioneers, with first leg ending 3-3 while ABU Nobles will also be at home against Unilorin Warriors after the first leg between the two ended 1-0 in favour of the Ilorin side.

In Delta, Delsu Titans will welcome Uniport Sharks to their home ground with the hope of overturning a 3-2 first leg loss as Unimaid Desert Warriors will be away to UAM Tillers with the game poised 1-1 from the first leg.
