Football fans in Lafia will now have the opportunity to watch the NPFL live again after the League Management Company (LMC) re-opened the Lafia City Stadium for Nasarawa United matches.
The LMC made the statement known to the public through its official twitter handle @LMCNPFL on Wednesday.
According to the statement, “The LMC has granted conditional approval for Nasarawa Utd to admit fans to its home games after the club’s completion of the 5 home fixtures closed door sanction due to the fracas that occurred at the end of the MatchDay 4 fixture against Plateau Utd in Lafia.
“The LMC had also directed Nasarawa United as part of the conditions to be met before the sanction will be lifted, to erect a security barricade tunnel for players and match officials which the club has also complied with.”
In fulfilment of other conditions stipulated, Nasarawa United FC have held orientation programs for their supporters to create awareness against violence at match venues.
The program was supervised by officers of the state police & the Nasarawa State FA.
With this development, fans will now have access to the Lafia City Stadium on NPFL matchdays to support Nasarawa United with a new mindset of curbing violence in our stadiums.
Nasarawa United FC will play host to Abia Warriors in match day 18 fixtures on Sunday, the second day of February, 2020.
