All Nigeria Secondary School football Championship rescheduled


The state finals of the 2012 edition of the All Nigeria Secondary School football championship for the NNPC/Shell Cup has been rescheduled to hold in all states of the federation on February 16 and 17, 2012.

The spokesman of the organising committee, Shola Akinwale, told The Eagle Online that the recent nationwide protest forced the change in the date of the annual competition.

“As a result of the recent nationwide strike due to the removal of fuel subsidy, the organisers have rescheduled the earlier programme of the championship,” he said.

Speaking further, the former international said that the Zonal Preliminary matches are now slated for February 29 to March 2, 2012, while the quarter finals will be played on March 13 and 14.

The semi-finals will hold on March 23 and the final on March 25.
