“We are planning to start the league season in December and hopefully conclude by May next year in order to align with European season and check the frequency of exodus of players to foreign countries league,” our IMC source who requested anonymity divulged.

“The league has to be abridged because we don’t have time and we have to ensure that we meet the deadline set for the completion of the league season. It is not easy, but with the cooperation of the clubs, match officials, sponsors and the NFF I think we can meet the targeted dates. ”

Our source also revealed that the IMC is also working round the clock to ensure that the NPFL is on television, adding that they are discussing with NTA and other cable and terrestrial stations.
