Giwa FC expelled from Nigeria Premier League

Jos club Giwa FC has been expelled from the current season of the Nigeria Professional Football League for failing to honour three games.

Giwa FC did not honour the tie against Wikki Tourists, Akwa United and Enyimba.

Giwa FC was banished to Ilorin to play three consecutive home games after disturbances in its match day 12 tie with Rangers which was not concluded in Jos.

The League Management Company (LMC) announced the expulsion on Friday on its twitter handle.

“Giwa FC has been expelled from 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football league season

“Giwa FC is in breach of #NPFL Framework & Rules for failing to honour three cumulative fixtures without acceptable reason.

“The three fixtures, Giwa failed to honour, being in Ilorin against Wikki (MD14), Akwa Utd (MD16) and Enyimba (MD18)

“Giwa FC’s letter to have its game against Enyimba rescheduled failed to meet ‪#‎NPFL provision requesting for a shift in game 72 hours before the said game holds.

“Giwa FC will also pay a fine of N250k as expenses for stadium hire, security and other logistics incurred for the match vs Enyimba.

“For failing to honour the fixture with Enyimba, Giwa FC will pay a fine of N10million. But it has a right to appeal or accept this decision within 48 hours.

The LMC said it has notified all club chairmen that Giwa FC has been expelled from the ‪NPFL, and also said all clubs that have played Giwa FC to date will be fairly compensated in proportional basis.

“All matches involving Giwa FC, played or unplayed, have been suspended without prejudice to the final determination of the matter on the club’s failure to honour the game against Enyimba.
