NNL adjusts Super 8 date as Enugu remains venue

The board of Nigeria National League ( NNL) has announced a shift in date of the Super 8 earlier scheduled for May 23-30 at Enugu, the Enugu State Capital.

The competition will now be held from June 7-14, 2024 at the same venue.

Making the announcement Sunday, Chairman of the League, Mr. George Aluo said that the shift in date became necessary because of the President Federation Cup round of 32 matches which will be determined that week.

“We decided to move the Super 8 forward because the date clashed with the Federation Cup Round of 32 matches and the best thing for us to do is to align our calendar with that of the NFF.”

Aluo noted that the shift in date notwithstanding, all modalities for a successful competition has been put in place just as he commended the Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah and the Commissioner for Youths and Sports Bar. Lloyd Ekwerenmadu for accepting to host the championship.

The Super 8 is organised annually at the end of the league to determine the overall champion of the second-tier League as well as teams that will gain promotion to the elite league.

The eight teams that have already qualified for the championship are; Nasarawa Utd, Sporting Supreme of Abuja, Sokoto Utd and El-Kanemi Warriors.

Others are Beyond Limit FC, Madiba FC, Inter Lagos and Ikorodu Utd.

Meanwhile, the following teams were relegated to NLO and they’re; Stormers FC, Ekiti Utd and 1472 FC all from Conference A of the league while Giant Brillars, FC One Rocket and Tradesafe FC that campaigned in Conference B were also relegated.
