NFF Speaks On Leagues Resumption
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said local football will be back once the Government gives the go-ahead.
While other African nations like Kenya and Angola have decided to end their league campaigns, Nigeria has decided to wait while the government faces the Covid-19 challenges.
“The NFF will liaise with the heads of the various Leagues (Nigeria Professional Football League; Nigeria National League; Nigeria Women Football League and; Nigeria Nation-wide League One) and other important stakeholders on the return of the domestic football season, subject to announcement by the Federal Government on resumption of football and other sporting activities in the country,” a statement read.
The 2019/20 Nigeria Professional Football League was halted at week 25 by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
