As part of requirements by the Nigerian government, through the National Council for Disease Control, NCDC, players and officials of Go Round FC have undergone COVID 19 test ahead of the kick-off of Nigeria National League NNL.

All twenty-five players in the team as well as coaches, backroom staff, and other officials took part in the covid 19 test.

The team is currently in Ughelli to play a pre-season tournament tagged Ughelli pre-season Cup.

The team will return to Omoku after the Ughelli pre-season tournament to continue their preparation for the League.

The fixtures for the new NNL season pit Go Round FC against Akujiobi FC in the first game in Omoku but the latest reports seem to suggest that Osun United will be playing in place of Akujiobi.

Go Round FC will have clubs like Shooting Stars, Vandrezzer FC, Delta Force, and Calabar Rovers to contend with if its dreams of returning to the top flight NPFL can be achieved at the end of this season.

Coach of the side, Abiye Iyalla is optimistic that with the players at his disposal, the team will put up a good fight.

“It is a league and we are here for the fight. Football is not about names but about what you do on the pitch, so I am optimistic that we have done enough to fight for promotion and get it,” Iyalla said.
