Nigeria National League side Go Round FC of Omoku has lined-up three friendly games ahead of the kick-off of the new NNL season.

The new NNL season is expected to kick-off on February 13, 2021, after a series of postponements.

The league was initially scheduled to commence on January 30, 2021, but was postponed to the new date.

Go Round FC will now play against J. Atete FC at Omoku on Monday 8 February as one of three final pre-season friendly games before the Nigeria National League kick-off.

After the game against J. Atete at Omoku on Thursday, the team will move to Yenagoa for a game against Bayelsa United and then head to Delta State for a return leg friendly match against J. Atete FC.

Coach of Go Round FC Abiye Tamuno-Iyalla said the team have had to play more matches after the original kick-off date for the league was moved.

“We thought we were through with friendly games, but with the league’s kick-off moving by two weeks, we had to schedule three more games.

“We believe that after these games we will be fully ready to start the league and push for a good placing in the league,” Tamunoiyalla said.

Go Round FC start the season with a home game against Osun United and then another home game against Stationery Stores, before going away to Dynamite FC.
