The League Management Company (LMC) has indefinitely postponed the start of the 2018/19 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
The new football campaign was scheduled for December 1.
This latest development came on the backdrop of the Nigeria National League management’s inability to present promoted teams barely few days to earlier suggested kick-off date of the elite league.
In a statement to club owners, the LMC stated that the Congress scheduled to hold on Tuesday, November 27, in Asaba has been postponed without a new date.
Meanwhile, the club managers in the Bet9ja Nigeria National League (NNL) scheduled to meet in Abuja next week are clamouring for eight teams to gain promotion to the NPFL as against the agreed four teams.
Lobi Stars of Makurdi won last season’s abridged league.
