Plateau Bet9ja Tournaments: Nike Boys And Yellow Gyel Qualify As High-flyers FC Are Banned For 2yrs After Failure To Honour Last Match


Yesterday’s interesting matches were blighted by the highest level of unprofessionalism exhibited by High-flyers FC when they refused to show up for their last group match against last edition’s Runners’up, Rantya Lions FC,hence, the organizers have suspended them from this lucrative tournament for two years.

Bet9ja Agent, Pius Ogbu, who was on ground when the unprofessional act was carried out by High-flyers FC told the Tournaments media partners, SSI Media: “In as much as we the Bet9ja Agents on the Plateau are going all out to contribute our own little quota to peaceful co-existence on the Plateau and develop football in the State, we won’t allow anybody to bring our efforts or the game of football into disrepute. We the sponsor and organizer of these tournaments have met and have placed a two year ban on High-flyers FC and any team that does same will have them face the same music or more. Why will you not come for match because you don’t have any hope of qualifying?”

It would be recalled that Rantya Lions FC themselves, coached by former Nigeria International, Sambo Choji, were already ousted as well even before the said match.
Hence, Rantya Lions FC, who were last edition’s Runners up were awarded 3pts and 3goals but not enough to qualify them to the next round.
