Abuja- The League Management Company (LMC) on Monday in Abuja said Feb. 20 was the registration deadline for clubs to submit their licensing documents for the 2014/15 Glo Premier League season.
A statement by LMC’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salihu Abubakar, said the documents included proof of no debts carried over, financial guarantee and medical passport of players.
It said the clubs have also been put on notice that mid-week fixtures would hold to accommodate recent socio-political developments in the country.
“As part of the registration process for the new season, clubs are to mandatorily provide a quarterly Financial Performance Guarantee of N50 million which is a condition for licensing to participate in the league.
“Clubs which are in a position to provide a one-off Performance Guarantee of N200m are also encouraged to do so,” Abubakar said in the statement.
It added that clubs must provide the Financial Performance Guarantee on or before March 5.
The LMC also said it would register players for clubs only if there was satisfactory evidence of no indebtedness to the players carried over from last season.
“Clubs must therefore attach proof of meeting all financial obligations to their staff to be qualified to register new players,” Abubakar said.
The statement also said the LMC advised clubs to ensure that every player to be registered must complete a medical check-up.
“The medical report should be filled out on the same old Medical Examination forms issued last season for players.
“Fresh medical certification must be provided for all players using same medical forms provided last season and these shall be attached to the registration materials being submitted by the clubs”, Abubakar advised in the statement.(NAN)
