NNL Pushes Ref’s Indemnities To Clubs

The management of the Nigeria National League (NNL) has said that football actions will resume across the country next Wednesday with Week 19 matches just as it has advised clubs to henceforth take over the responsibility of the payment of match indemnities to the referees.
The second tier league went on break after Week 18 matches to enable Nigerians support the Super Eagles campaign at the FIFA World Cup, Brazil 2014 Final. With the Eagles crashing out in the second round, the NNL during the week gave the green light for the league to resume on July 16, 2014.
Also, the NNL management has directed the participating clubs to now shoulder the responsibility of the payment of match indemnities to the officiating officials comprising of Match Commissioner, Centre Referee and his two assistants as well as the Reserve Referee.    
In a letter signed by the NNL Secretary, Lawrence Katken clubs were told that the lean financial status of the league prompted the decision to ask clubs to undertake the payment of the match indemnities of the referees. NNL had shouldered the responsibilities for 18 matches.
