The Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) will resume on September 2 after a long break.
According to various reports, the league will restart on September 2 and end on October 28 with 14 games in 56 days for each of the twenty teams.
The new resumption date was also confirmed by the official Twitter handle of Enugu Rangers.
The NPFL had earlier gone on break in June after the conclusion of week 24 matches to accommodate the recently concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
The league was initially expected to resume on July 18 only for it to be suspended indefinitely due to the crisis troubling the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
With the NFF Crisis seemingly nearing its conclusion, league matches will now go ahead as from September 2.
As the NPFL will resume September 2, our first game will be against Nasarawa United, that same day at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium
