Osun United Face 3SC as Kano Stars, Others Battle in NLO Playoffs


The management of the Nation-wide League One, on Tuesday, released the pairings of teams and match venues, plus dates and times for the Promotional Playoff games, scheduled for the 26th and 27th of May 2023, with the likes of Osun United, First Bank, 3SC’s Team B, and a host of others featuring for progress to the next level on the Nigerian League pyramid.

Credible and authentic information was received from the office of the Chief Operating Officer – Olushola Ogunnowo, containing the schedule, fixtures, and dates for the promotional games in the NLO.

Eight games will go down across seven different centres, with Remo Stars’ home stadium in Ikenne, Ogun State hosting two games – the matches between Tradesafe Sports vs Lekki United, as well as Osun United FC vs 3SC Team B, on the 27th and 26th respectively.

All but one game over both dates will go down by 3pm prompt, with the odd game between Maikunkele United FC and the Kings FC taking center stage by 10am on the 27th, at the Jos International Stadium.

According to the COO, the Nation-wide League One Secretariat decided to move the final playoff games to the designated venues for “ease of administration, and neutrality”, stating that the center coordinator will be on standby alongside the host football association, to ensure cooperation.

The attention of the Nigeria Football Federation’s Referee Association was also called to the development via the letter, as match officiating will also be scrutinised, in view of avoiding mishaps during and after the playoffs.
