Lagos - The Nigeria National League Management has
authorized participating clubs to henceforth use only FIFA-approved footballs
in the on-going competition pending the delivery and distribution of the
much-awaited branded match balls from the manufacturers.
According to the NNL secretary, Lawrence Katken, the league
management took this decision following various reports received from club
officials and official match reports on the six weeks old competition.
Katken therefore directed all states Football Associations and
clubs themselves to ensure that at least 10 balls are made available for every
NNL match or face sanction.
The NNL action resumes this weekend with week seven games.
