Handball fans in Nigeria who have been starved of action will get the chance to binge-watch their favourite sport as the Handball Federation of Nigeria have announced plans to keep fans engaged amid the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
The outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria has seen a temporary pause in normal life and a nation-wide ban on all sporting activities.
The development means the first phase of the 2020 Prudent Energy Handball Premier League originally scheduled to begin this April was suspended indefinitely.
The HFN has, however, devised a means of ensuring that fans can still get their fill of handball action as they await the commencement of the season.
The Federation announced that several blockbuster matches from the second phase of last season’s competition will be streamed on Facebook starting from Monday, 13 April.
The 2020 Prudent Energy Handball Premier League phase one which was suppose to commence this April in April was suspended indefinitely because of the covid-19 virus. So we've decided to relieve some of the matches of last season phase 2 matches. @sochehohandball @SundayDareSD pic.twitter.com/1zO2Ly1Ysi
