Officials of Go Round FC, host of our match day eight encounter, have refused access to VFC TV crew and equipment into the Krisdera stadium, Omoku, with less than two hours to kick-off.
Just as in the Week Six clash in Calabar, this insistence by the home side has occured despite presenting an authority letter from the NNL to broadcast all Vandrezzer FC games.
While refusing to listen to our explanation and heeding to the NNL letter, Go Round FC General Manager Sunny Oboh instead has given an option of a N1m (One million naira) fee before our equipment can be set up for streaming.
This resolve of the home side has raised uneccessary tensions ahead of today's game, which might be threatened by our refusal to broadcast.
Under the authority of the NNL,VFC TV has broadcast all the Lions' matches this season (home and away) with a camera/technical crew of not less than ten personnel, who always conform to COVID 19 prevention regulations.
The league body has been notified in writing about the latest development, as we anticipate a speedy response with a view to setting up in time and showcasing our beautiful game to the world, as we have always done.
For now our cameramen and equipment are still locked out of the stadium main bowl, a situation that will see us PULL OUT THE GAME if it persists.
Vandrezzer FC...won't walk that road without you!
