The management of Kwara United FC of Ilorin, has announced the change of its nickname from “Afonja Warriors” to “Harmony Boys”.
The Club in a statement on Friday in Ilorin, signed by the General Manager Alhaji Haruna Maigidansanma, said the change was part of the ongoing rebranding of the club.
“We will like to be known from now as “Harmony Boys” against Afonja Warriors. Kwara United is not a small team and we must start to do things to prove this”
“Our state is state of harmony. So it is right for the state owned football team to be known as “Harmony Boys” the statement said.
Meanwhile, the club has proceeded on a week break over the postponement of the Glo Premier League by three weeks.
It would be recalled that the league organizers, the League Management Company (LMC), announced the break to pave way for harmonization between clubs and new governments.
