The Chairman of Interim Management Committee, Gbenga Elegbeleye has exclusively revealed that the Nigeria Professional Football League Super Six will hold at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Lagos.
Super Six is a competition where top three NPFL clubs from group A and group B will clash to determine the eventual winner of the 2022/23 NPFL season.
Elegbeleye said a lot of factors was put into consideration before making the final decision on the venue for the super six. He added that for fairness the venue must not home to any team that will be participating in the tournament.
“Yes, the Super 6 will hold in Lagos,” he said.
Recall that the IMC’s Head of Operations, Davidson Owumi had disclosed that Lagos and Abuja have been pencilled down as provisional venues.
“We are keeping the issue of venue very close to our chest. We will look at several factors before announcing it. First and foremost, we would want to be fair to the teams in terms of neutrality. We have to consider marketing, TV friendly nature of the venue and all that,” Owumi said.
However, IMC chairman has confirmed that it will hold in Lagos where NPFL Super 4 Invitational Tournament that heralded this season was held.
With few games left to end the season, teams are still justling for a place in the off-season super six.
As at MatchDay 13, in group A, Bendel Insurance, Akwa United and Enyimba International are the top three teams while Lobi Stars, Rivers United and Niger Tornadoes are top three clubs in group B.
