The League Management Company (LMC) has granted Kano Pillars provisional approval to return to their home ground, Sani Abacha stadium.
In a letter dated April 12, 2022 and signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar, the LMC granted the provisional clearance pending the commencement of replacement works on the playing turf.

Prior to the commencement of the 2021/2022 season of the NPFL, the LMC had turned down Sani Abacha stadium due to its poor playing surface.
Kano Pillars then adopted the Ahmadu Bello stadium Kaduna as their new home ground.
However, the club management had written on April 1 to inform the LMC that the Kano State government had made funds available for the bad pitch to be replaced.
“Be informed that after due consideration of your request, the League Management Company is granting Kano Pillars FC provisional clearance to temporarily return to the Sani Abacha stadium for your home matches, pending the commencement of replacement works on the playing turf.
“You are however required to immediately propose an alternate ground where you will revert your remaining home matches when the turf replacement project commences at the Sani Abacha Stadium,” the letter stated.
Meanwhile Katsina United will be Pillars first visitors this weekend.
