Dikko confirms December for new NPFL season

The Chairman of the League Management Company, Shehu Dikko, has disclosed that the Nigeria Professional Football League,(NPFL) 2016/2017 season will be start in the first week of December.

This is however a confirmation to an earlier speculation of a December 4 starting date for the new season.

The embattled chairman has said the plan to start the league in December was to allow the teams playing on the continent to prepare for the competition.

He stated further that the target for the new season was to improve on the achievements of the last season and also to take the league to another level.

“We want to start so as to allow our clubs playing on the continent to be in a competition mood,”

“We always evaluate where we are coming from and where we are going to and the target is to move ahead to another level.”

“We are going to evaluate the positives and see how to improve on the negatives. We are not there yet, we have to continue to improve and the stakeholders have been telling us that we are improving, so we want to continue to move forward.”
