The Interim Management Committee (IMC) for the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) has recently announced that matches of the competition will continue to run as scheduled until the season’s conclusion. This decision was made in order to ensure a smooth running of the season, despite the current circumstances.
The NPFL has been subject to postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the IMC deciding to focus on the safety of players, staff, and fans. This has led to the league being delayed, with the NPFL working hard to make sure the season could still be completed.
The IMC has also announced that teams such as Rangers International FC, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, and Kano Pillars FC will be allowed to compete in the upcoming matches. This decision was made to ensure that the competition is fair and balanced and that teams are not disadvantaged by the pandemic.
The IMC has also taken steps to ensure the safety of all involved. Teams have been advised to take all necessary precautions and follow safety guidelines, including the use of face masks and social distancing. Furthermore, the IMC has stated that teams should take extra care when travelling between match venues.
The NPFL has also announced that they will be providing additional support to teams that are struggling financially due to the pandemic. This includes financial aid and other assistance, in order to ensure that the teams are able to continue to compete in the NPFL.
The IMC has stated that the NPFL is determined to reach a successful conclusion of the season, and that their decision to continue running the matches is in the best interest of the league and its participants. With the IMC’s commitment to safety and fairness, it is likely that the NPFL will be able to reach a successful conclusion of the 2020 season.
