To give Sharks FC the motivation it need to conquer visiting Kwara United in tomorrow’s Glo Premier League match in their new ground, Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, official shirt sponsors of the club, Eunisell Limited, has set aside large number of jerseys to be distributed freely to supporters and soccer fans who come out to cheer the Blue Angels.

The League Management Company (LMC) has ordered Sharks FC of Port Harcourt to play their next three home matches in Enugu starting with the Match Day 37 fixture against Kwara United.

The decision was sequel to ruling of the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) Disciplinary Committee on an appeal filed by Sharks FC after the LMC ruled on the abandoned Match Day 36 fixture against Nasarawa United in Lafia.

The LMC had relied on Article B13.26 to fine Sharks N3m, forfeit the match to Nasarawa United and also be docked three points and three goals from the already accrued points.

But the NFF Disciplinary Committee rose from their sitting over an appeal by Sharks and relied on Article B13.24 to order Sharks to pay N5m, be banished to a neutral ground and also forfeit the three points and three goals to Nasarawa United.

The Communications Manager of Eunisell Limited, Kunmi Balogun, said that the gesture is part of the company’s effort to encourage more fans to watch the local league.

Both Sharks FC and Kwara United are battling for survival in the relegation water.
The Port Harcourt-based club now sees tomorrow’s game as an avenue to swim to safety and Eunisell says mobilising the fans would go a long way in helping the club.

We hope this will encourage fans and supporters of Sharks FC to come out and cheer the team to victory in this all-important game against Kwara United,” Balogun said. “The season is almost ending and there is no better way to wrap it up than having a stadium filled with supporters singing in angelic voices to encourage the Blue Angels. That is the kind of participation we want for our league.”
