| |

Katsina United is to pay a fine of N1 million and face possible relocation to another stadium for severally not allowing visiting teams access to train on their registered home ground for matches as provided by the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Framework and Rules.

The League Management Company (LMC) announced the penalties after reviewing the complaints by three other clubs and a similar complaint by Rangers International which were prevented from gaining access to the Mohammed Dikko Stadium on Tuesday for a rescheduled fixture.

Following a charge of misconduct in breach of Rule C1 of the Rules, the LMC exercised its summary jurisdiction to impose the fine on Katsina United.

Salihu Abubakar, the LMC Chief Operating Officer in a letter conveying the decision to the club, stated, “You are in breach of Rule C1 (Misconduct) of the Framework and Rules of the Nigeria Professional Football League, in that you severally prevented or failed to permit the visiting teams from gaining access to your registered home ground for the scheduled pre-match training, thereby failing, inter alia, to act in the best interest of the game and comply with the principles of fair play and sportsmanship”.
