Vandrezzer FC’s away fixture against Calabar Rovers, which was scheduled to hold at the U. J. Esuene Stadium on Saturday, December 14, 2019 has been postponed.
The Matchday Four game has been called off after the Nigeria National League accepted the request of the Cross River State Football Association to postpone the game.
The Cross River football body, in a letter dated 12 December 2019, appealed to the Nigeria National League (NNL) to put back the tie to avoid a clash of dates with the Calabar Carnival and the Nigeria Football Federation Annual Meeting.
Responding to the request, the NNL said, “We receive with thanks a letter from Cross River State Football Association dated 12th December, 2019 on the above subject, in which they drew the attention of the League to the Cross River State Carnival which has been scheduled to hold at the U. J. Esuene Stadium beginning from 16th to 31st December, 2019, as well as the Nigeria Football Federation Annual General Meeting scheduled for 17th December, 2019.
“In view of the above, I have the instruction to notify you that the above named week 4 match is hereby placed on hold.”
No new date has been announced for the game, but the NNL said in a letter signed by Chief Operating Officer Lawrence Katken, that “a new date will be communicated shortly.”
