Nigerian League: LMC Approves 18 Clubs, Drops Nembe City, Giwa FC

The League Management Company (LMC) has certified 18 Clubs as fit to participate in the 2013/14 Glo Premier League while all the fixtures involving Giwa FC and Nembe City FC have been dropped from the schedule as both teams failed to substantially comply with the minimum registration requirements.

The decision was announced Thursday by the LMC through the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salihu Abubakar who disclosed that the other eighteen Clubs substantially met the requirements and received provisional approvals to compete in the league.

“Since the deadline for submission of registration form closed 48 hours ago, we have been scrutinizing the registration materials returned by the Clubs and can now state that Nembe City and Giwa FC are in substantial default of the minimum requirements to participate in the Glo Premier League this season. They have consequently been withdrawn from the fixture and all matches involving both Clubs are cancelled”, Abubakar said in Abuja.

The LMC insists that the registration requirements are based on licensing principles that promotes the development of the league for the benefit of the Clubs. “This is the first step towards bringing our Clubs to meet the conditions prescribed in the Nigeria Football Federation Club Licensing Regulation which recently came into force.
