Giwa FC expelled from NPFL


Giwa Football Club have been expelled from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The Jos club failed to honour three matches and in accordance with the competition’s rules, have been thrown out.

Giwa was banished to Ilorin by the League Management Company (LMC), following violence from their fans during their fixture against Enugu Rangers. Ever since, they have failed to honour games against Wikki Tourist, Akwa United and Enyimba.

“Giwa FC has been expelled from 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football league season,” LMC wrote on Twitter.

“Giwa FC is in breach of the 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 was banished to Ilorin to play three consecutive home games after disturbances in its match day 12 game.

“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.

“Giwa FC has a right to appeal or accept this decision within 48 hours.”

Giwa becomes the second club to be expelled from the league after Ocean Boys in 2012.
