NFF dismiss Enyimba’s appeal, uphold Rangers 3-point decision

The Nigeria Football Federation Disciplinary Committee has ruled on Enyimba FC’s appeal, confirming certain sanctions while overturning others.

The committee upheld the decision to award the match to Rangers International.
However, it dismissed Enyimba FC’s appeal regarding certain fines imposed by the NPFL disciplinary panel.
