The Nigeria National League have asked the Nigeria Football Federation to shift the kickoff date of the NNL promotion playoffs which was scheduled to begin on January 3.
The playoffs, initially billed to hold in Aba in December, was moved to January 3 after five of the eight clubs boycotted the tournament.
The boycotting clubs insisted on a direct promotion for the top two teams from the four NNL groups.
After a meeting between the NNL and top NFF officials in Lagos, though, an agreement was reached, and the kickoff was moved to Thursday, January 3.
However, that kickoff date, it appears, will be moved again, as the NNL have written the NFF requesting that the start of the Super 8 be shifted to Saturday, January 5.
The shift, the NNL said, is to give the concerned clubs time to “effect the resolution of the meeting.”
The letter read in part: “Sequel to our meeting on 27th December, 2018 held in Lagos we hereby request for the shift of date for the commencement of the Super 8 from the 3rd to 5th January, 2019.
“This is to enable the concerned club’s to effect the resolution of the meeting in good time.”
