Nigerian Professional Football League Suspended Indefinitely – LMC





The League Management Company, LMC has announced the indefinite suspension of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) which was scheduled to resume from the World Cup break on Wednesday, July 18.
In a letter to all the 20 clubs signed by LMC Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar they attributed the suspension of the league to uncertainty in the Nigerian football space following the takeover of the Nigeria Football Federation by Chis Giwa.

“Kindly be informed that the League Management Company (LMC) has reached a decision to postpone the resumption of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) indefinitely,” reads the statement.

“The decision is based on the current adverse circumstances in the administration of football in the country as a result of which sponsors, partners and service providers have expressed strong concerns and are reviewing their involvement in the league

“There is therefore the need to engage them further in this regard in order to mitigate against any possible adverse outcome. Furthermore, organizing matches of the NPFL under the current circumstances might cause irreversible damage to the League brand” , the statement noted.

The letter further explained to the clubs that a major partner with whom negotiation had been concluded and approved at the last annual general meeting of the LMC in Port Harcourt on May 28, 2018 has requested for the suspension of the execution of the contract as a result of the on-going challenges in national football administration.
