Against expectations that the much-awaited 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL will kick off across the country on Sunday, November 6, an authoritative source said that the league will, after all, not commence as announced.

It could be recalled that the League Management Company, LMC, earlier this month announced the 6th as the kick-off date.

The announcement was followed by the release of match fixtures for the league season.

But our correspondent scooped that the league has been postponed to a later date.

A competent source who spoke to our correspondent said that the league will not kick-off this weekend as expected adding that the league organizers will issue a statement on the new date this week.

“Your inquiry on the postponement of the league is correct,” the source started anonymously.

“I can confirm to you that the league will not resume on Sunday as was earlier announced. There is speculation that it might commence on 13th November but I can’t say for now

“The league organizers will issue a statement on the postponement within the week,” the source said.

Nigeria Premier League has been on hiatus since March after sporting activities were suspended due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
