Owumi Explains Reason For Super 6 Postponement


According to the Interim Management Committee (IMC), the Super 6 was moved from May to June to make room for clubs competing in the Federation Cup and the NPFL.

This comes after the IMC issued a revised schedule of events for the 2022–23 NPFL Super 6, with the start date of June 3 and the last day of play being Sunday, June 11.



According to Davidson Owumi, the Committee’s Head of Operations, the decision was mutually decided with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to adjust the schedule to make room for the League and the Federation Cup teams.

“With Federation Cup round of 16 and quarter-finals fixtures slated for 24 and 28 of May, we reasoned that the Super 6 can no longer hold from the earlier date as some of the teams that might qualify for the Play-off are also possibly going to be in the Federation Cup,” Owumi said.

Teams and Match Officials are required to arrive in Lagos on June 1 while the match officials are to arrive Friday, June 2; and every other meeting takes place including a meeting with the host FA.

The tournament will kick off on June 3 with three games on each Matchday and a free day in between each Matchday.
