NPFL New Season Gets December 13 Kick-Off Date

The 2016/17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season would start on the 13th of December as confirmed by the League Management Company (LMC) chairman, Shehu Dikko.

Speaking on the plans for the new season, Dikko said: “Our target now is to start December 18 and end July 9, while our Super 4 will be between December 5 and 11. We also plan to start the 2018 season by the end of August 2017.

“All the clubs already have the schedule and planning. We want to align our calendar to Europe by the end of the 2017 season, which would be hugely beneficial for us both in terms of organization, planning and even finances.

“This will get our clubs going in CAF competitions as they will play at least 13 to 15 games before the start of CAF competitions in February 2017,” he concluded. The past season was concluded on October 2. ‎
