NPFL Restart Date Set For August

The Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) will resume by the start of next month according to a top official of its governing body, The League Management Company (LMC).

The NPFL had gone on break in June to accommodate the just concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia and resumption was initially expected on Wednesday, July 18 only for it to be postponed indefinitely due to the crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

“The league should be up and running on or before 8th August.” the official said.

“We planned to end the season by October. We have 14 more games to play in the NPFL and will see how it goes.” He added.

The NPFL will resume with Matchday 25 fixtures.

Lobi Stars are currently the team to beat in the league after garnering 43 points from 24 games to stay above the rest of the teams.
