NPFL: No going back on abridged league – IMC boss, Elegbeleye

Published

on

Chairman, Interim Management Committee (IMC), Gbenga Elegbeleye, has stated that the body won’t go back on an abridged format for the 2022/2023 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

The 2022/23 campaign is already running behind schedule, and the IMC has settled for the abridged format to keep up with the schedule.

A number of clubs have reportedly kicked against the idea, but Elegbeleye insisted that there is no going back on IMC’s decision.

“Some club owners wanted the first top four teams to represent Nigeria for next season on the continent because they want the league to end in July,” Elegbeleye told reporters.

“The NFF advised we should go for an abridged league.

“A club chairman informed that his players want to rest because they played on the continent.

“The league will start on January 8 with draws for December 28 on 100% abridged format, any club not ready might decide to leave.”

The teams will be divided into two groups of 10 teams each.

The top four teams in each group will meet later to decide the winner.
