With less than five days to the commencement of the 2021/2022 NPFL season, the League Management Company (LMC) has rescinded it's decision to suspend the Kwara State Stadium Complex from hosting league matches.
LMC in a correspondence letter dated December 14th 2021, and signed by the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salihu Abubakar disclosed the approval is conditional on the promise that the workload and programs in the stadium, especially the pitch would be reduced, and constantly maintained.
According to LMC's letter, "we have noted the amount of emergency work done to address the lapses enumerated and also note that the Kwara state government immediately awarded the contract for the replacement of the pitch.
"We envisaged all these processes will be concluded within the first quarter of 2022 and before the conclusion of first round matches.
"Consequently, a provisional approval is hereby granted for Kwara stadium to host Kwara United FC matches within the framework of the NPFL 2021/2022 season.
"We will continue to monitor the stadium as well as others to ensure that standards are met and maintained".
Kwara United FC will roll out the dice against Dakkada FC in the first match of the season while neighbouring Niger Tornadoes will also use the same stadium as their adopted home for the new campaign.
