Kwara United to play home games behind closed doors indefinitely

Kwara United have been ordered by the League Management Company (LMC) to play their subsequent home games in this season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) behind closed doors.

LMC, in a letter signed by its Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salihu Abubakar, said this would be until they were satisfied with the club’s efforts in the area of crowd control.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the LMC had earlier imposed on the club a sanction of playing one game behind closed doors against Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan.

This was in the wake of the encroachment by some of their supporters into the pitch after the win against Rivers United of Port Harcourt in Ilorin on Match Day 26.

LMC, in the letter to the Ilorin-based club’s Chairman, Kumbi Titiloye, expressed dissatisfaction with the manner some fans gained entrance into the stadium during the Match Day 28 clash against 3SC FC.

NAN reports that Kwara United won the match 3-1.

NAN reports that Kwara United have been scheduled to take on Akwa United on Sunday in Ilorin without fans in an NPFL Match Day 30 encounter.

With nine games to go this season in the NPFL, Kwara United still have five home games to play at the Kwara State Stadium in Ilorin.

They will face Akwa United, Katsina United, Sunshine Stars, Nasarawa United and MFM FC.

Kwara United are currently occupying the sixth position on the NPFL table. (NAN)
