The management of Plateau United Football Club of Jos says fans are allowed to watch their Nigeria Professional Football League matchday 10 clash against Kada City Stars of Kaduna at the New Jos Stadium on Wednesday.
Media Officer of the Club, Albert Dakup informed Sportinglife.ng that the insinuations that the match would be close doors are not only false, but a calculated attempt aimed at depriving the team the much needed home support aimed at galvanising the team to victory.
“What the League Management Company LMC directed the club to do is simply to ensure that unauthorized persons should not be seen outside the perimeter fencing of the stadium before and during matches. Only the medical team of the two clubs and security agents are allowed within the tracks and outside the the perimeter fences.
“We equally advice fans and supporters to abide by the order as anyone found violating the new directive will be decisively dealt with by the security who have been properly briefed by the new order.
“The management of the Club on collaboration with the Plateau State Football Association is therefore using this medium to appeal to the general public especially soccer fans to take note of the new directive,” Dakup said.
It would be recalled that Plateau United were banished from their home ground after hoodlums attacked center referee, Sam Agba after its Nigeria Professional Football League week one fixtures against Ifeanyi Uba ended goalless.
Plateau United who are presently occupying the 8th spot on the Group B league table with 11 points from 9 matches, will host bottom placed Kada City Stars after serving their three match banishment in Ilorin and Lafia.
