REASONS FOR THIS ADJUSTMENT FOR ADDITIONAL WEEKS ARE DETAILS BELOW.

2, To be able to finalize with Super Sports and other media organizations to have enough publicity of sponsors’ products.
3, To give the game immense publicity starting from this week.
4, May 27 is end of the season and this will enable more concentration and support from both participating legends,Stake holders and publicity crew.
