Consultation Ongoing On How We Will End Nigerian Football League Season – NFF


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has revealed that discussions are being held as to how to end the 2019-20 domestic league season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), the body responsible for the management of the league, has suspended football activities since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Boss Mustapha, chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and secretary to the federal government, early this month said the government had no plans to open sporting activities leading the League Management Company (LMC) to propose four options to end the league, including a point-per-game (PPG) method.

Club owners had to vote in favour of the PPG as Plateau United currently lead the NPFL table with 49 points from 25 games while Rivers United are second with 45 points, and both clubs are in the Caf Champions League spots.

17 chairmen of the Club Owners Association voted in favour of the PPG method agreeing clubs should not face promotion or relegation.
