The Nigeria Proffessional Football League season earlier scheduled to kickoff on December 28 this year, will now begin on January 8, 2023.
The Interim Management Committee IMC, set up to rebrand the league, have been having series of meetings with key stakeholders on how to make the league better after years of stagnation caused by poor management and inadequate funding.
At the end of yet another meeting, the IMC finally came to these conclusions
- That the Draw for 2022/2023 NPFL Season will hold on December 28 while the League itself, will kickoff on January 8, 2023
- The IMC also agreed to give all 20 teams participating in the 2022/2023 NPFL Season the sum of 10m Naira (ten million naira only) as takeoff grants ahead of the new football season
- The IMC and the clubs also agreed to go ahead with an abridged league format as against the usual full season format that has been used over the years.
After today’s meeting, all parties have agreed to the new start date for the league and are now eagerly looking forward to the draw on December 28, 2022.
