The 2022/2023 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season will commence in December this year, according to the Chairman of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the League, Gbenga Elegbeleye.

The Nigerian topflight league has been on break since July, with the IMC inaugurated by the Sports Ministry to replace the League Management Company in October.

“I want to assure Nigerians that the 2022/2023 NPFL will start this year. We (IMC and representatives of 20 NPFL Clubs) have agreed on the date but we can’t tell the public without approval by the NFF,” Elegbeleye said to journalists in Abuja.

“Once the issue of club licensing and all the participating clubs present standard pitches good enough to be shown on television, the league will kick off. We have a number of sponsors already that will enable the league to be shown on TV.”

“However, we still need to brief the NFF on sponsorship. What I can assure everyone is that this season’s league will be better than what we are used to,” Elegbeleye added.
