Dolphin FC & Sharks FC merge to form Rivers United FC, Rivers State Sports.
Dolphin FC + Sharks FC = Rivers United FC
The Rivers State Government has been granted permission by the League Management Company to change Dolphins football club’s name to Rivers United F.C.
Also as the Rivers State government plans to streamline financial outlay in the state sports sector, the government has merged Dolphins football club with it’s sister club Sharks Football club to form the new Rivers United FC.
The approval was conveyed in a letter by the LMC. It read:
“Pursuant to the provisions to the article A5.4 of the Framework and Rules of the Nigeria Professional Football League, having duly considered your permission to change the name of the club from “Dolphins Football Club” to “Rivers United Football Club”.
“We are pleased to convey to you the approval of the League Management Company.”
The club barely escaped the drop last season as they needed a 2-2 away draw against Shooting Stars in the final day of the campaign and the Rivers State government has developed new strategies to redevelop the club and re-position it for success in the coming years.
