Why the NPFL is postponing rookies fixtures

The NPFL’s League Management Company (LMC) has explained why it has opted to postponed four matches that involve several newly-promoted clubs.

THe LCM’s CEO Salihu Abubakar offered the reasons behind the decision.

"The games involving the promoted clubs from the NNL are being shifted to give the clubs time to return to their respective bases and make adequate plans to play in the NPFL,” Abubakar reasoned.

"It’s only fair that the players be allowed time to recover from the rigours of the tournament they just participated in and they would join from Matchday 2 while a new date will be announced for the postponed fixtures,” was the conclusion.

Affected clubs:

  • Bendel Insurance
  • Remo Stars
  • Kada City
  • Gombe United.

Futaa will keep a close eye on the rescheduled fixture dates.
