Franklin Owhor also said the club will look for ways to source for funds to carry out its activities instead of depending on the government for subventions.

He noted that the Supporters Club will not achieve much if they depend on the government for financial assistance.

Franklin Owhor also appealed to Port Harcourt football fans to come out en-masse to support the team to victory during the match-day two game of NPFL against Heartland on Sunday, Nov 10 at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.

He opined that Rivers United is now playing attractive football that will entice Port Harcourt football fans to love the team.
