The League Management Company has made further adjustments to the fixtures of the remaining games of the 2013/14 Glo Premier League in response to sudden changes in the Federation Cup fixtures and to stave off possible fixture congestion.
In the new adjustment, Match Day 20 games originally scheduled for July 20 has been moved by one week to July 27, while Match Day 21 games that would have been played on July 27 will now be on the midweek of August 6.
The Chief Operating Officer of the LMC, Salihu Abubakar, who announced the new changes, also disclosed further adjustments to the fixture for the games of Match Day 22 and 23.
“We have taken a second look at the changes in the Federation Cup fixtures and have taken steps to allow Clubs participating in that competition to avoid future fixture pile up that may confer advantages to some Club,” Abubakar explained.
“These changes only effect the tames of Match Day 20 to 24 and new dates for Match Day 23 and 24 are Sunday August 10 and Wednesday, August 13. All other fixtures will remain as has been scheduled and announced,” the LMC official added.
He advised stakeholders to take note of the changes and adjust their schedule accordingly.
