2019/2020 Nigeria League: Expert Want Administrators to end Season by November
The coordinator forum for better organized Nigeria league, Vincent Akinbami, has called on the Ministry of sport and the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), to ensure the right thing is done as to the resumption of the Nation’s domestic league.
Suggesting the way forward on a live radio program in Kaduna, Akinbami, said with the funds from FIFA, CAF and the support that might come from the government through ministry of sport, the 2019/2020 league season should continue, to give the country true champion.
In his words, “the league that have started should end, like the NPFL and NNL, while the ones that as not started should be cancelled.
“The premier league and national league should be concluded, national league will promote but there should be no relegation.
“While the Amatuer/nation wide and the women’s league should be cancelled and wait till next season.”
He also suggested how the dates should be managed from now till next season.
“Continue the 2019/2020 season from july 2020 and end it in November 2020.
“Start 2020/2021 season in January 2021 to end in June 2021.
“Now align our calendar with Europe and other African countries for 2021/2022 season starting it in August 2021 to end in May 2022.
We are use too starting our league in January, so we can start 2020/2021 in January to make amends, but still insisted that the 2020/2021 season must not start, will not start without the demands of the group being met.” Akinbami, added.
