The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) 2023–2024 Season has been postponed by two weeks. The Interim Management Committee (IMC), which is in charge, has announced that the season will now start on September 8th through 10th instead of August 26th as originally scheduled.
The IMC explained that the extension was necessary to ensure proper preparation for a complete season, as it won’t be played in a shortened format.
Daily Stand Nigeria recalls that club owners previously rejected the committee’s proposal to follow the structure of the recently concluded season.
IMC noted that the newly launched NPFL Live app, commissioned just last week, hasn’t been fully tested in selected stadiums.
Additionally, there’s a scheduling conflict involving the four Nigerian teams participating in the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup. These teams are set to begin their preliminary stage matches this weekend.
However, IMC is all set to conduct the draw ceremony for the fresh season in Lagos this Thursday.
