The Interim Management Committee Chairman Gbenga Elegbeleye said plans are in place to make the 2022-2023 NPFL gets under way in December.
Elegbeleye in a chat with the media and football stakeholders in Abuja on Monday, stated that IMC has adopted a kick-off date, but waiting on the NFF for approval.
“I want to assure Nigerians that the 2022/23 NPFL will start this year. We have agreed on the date but we can’t tell the public without approval by the NFF.
“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.”
Elegbeleye also disclosed that the body has succeeded in bringing some sponsors on board to be part of the next campaign.
“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 we are used to,” Elegbeleye concluded.
Recall the IMC replaced Shehu Dikko’s led League Management Committee, LMC, as the organizers of the Nigerian topflight division.
