The League Management Company (LMC) has downplayed rumours of a court injunction ordering the suspension of matches of the new 2013/14 Glo Premier League season.
“We reiterate with all sense of responsibility that there is no order stopping the League,” read a statement from the office of the Chairman of the LMC.
The league body has noted that there have been claims by certain individuals in Jos alleging an infringement of their rights to viewership after purchasing tickets for purported league games.
“We have become aware of a suit filed at the Plateau State High Court, Jos by one ‘Mustapha Abubakar of Jos’ on the grounds that he had been denied rights to enjoy the league after purchasing Giwa FC match ticket(s) worth N5, 700 from a certain ‘Funky Odigie’,” the statement continued.
“It is on record that a similar case has been filed by this same Funky Odigie in a Federal High Court making various claims which the LMC has since responded to through our Lawyers”.
The LMC therefore has enjoined fans and stakeholders to go out and enjoy their league game matches, stressing it has similarly referred the new claim to their Lawyers to study and respond as appropriate.
