LMC fines Kano Pillars N8m, hands Ali 12-match ban

Kano Pillars are considering relocating away from Kano for their home games in the 2020/2021 CAF Confederation Cup the club announced on Friday.

Pillars will play in the competition after they were put forward as one of Nigeria’s two representatives following the curtailing of the 2019-20 Nigeria Professional Football League season.

But fans of the Northern behemoth won’t be able to watch their team at home when preliminary qualifiers begin as their Sani Abacha home ground is being used as a temporary Covid-19 isolation centre.

Instead, club chairman, Alhaji Surajo Shuaibu Jambul told Pillars website that the Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi and Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna are under consideration to host their preliminaries and group stage matches should Pillars qualify.

According to the chairman of the club, Alhaji Surajo Shuaibu Jambul, the Kano state Government has given approval for the team to look for an alternative venue for their home matches as Sani Abacha Stadium, Kofar Mata, has been chosen as one of the Covid-19 isolation centers in the state.

The Chairman said that his management team would approach the management of the above stadiums in Kaduna and Bauchi states to discuss the possibility of hosting the Sai Masu Gida’s continental assignments.

He said, one of the stadiums will be chosen after due consultations with the appropriate authority.

He further stated that his management team and technical crew are working closely to ensure that the team progressed to the group stages of the competition so as to ensure easy passage to the final and then brings the trophy to Nigeria as winners.

He, therefore, urged the fans to be patient and accept the situation they may likely found themselves in, considering that the Aiteo cup holders will not be playing its continental matches in Kano.
