Nigeria Premier League resumes April 21

After the completion of the first round of the Nigeria Premier League, the teams will go break for two weeks

After the successful completion of the first stanza of the Nigeria Premier League, the teams will go on break for two weeks and will resume on April 21.

According to the acting executive secretary of NPL Tunji Babalola, the break is to allow teams rest, get new players and be in a better mood to start the second round.

Babalola also told that majority of the outstanding matches would be played during the break.

"We have a lot of games yet to be played because of our teams playing in the Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup.

"We will try and see how we are going to juggle the fixtures to start this Wednesday and this weekend so that we can play all before the league re-starts April 21.

"There is enough time for us to play the matches and we will try and make sure that we do that so before the start of the second round, there will be no rescheduled matches.

"The transfer window is on and clubs can recruit and sign new players. The transfer window will last for one month," Babalola said.

Clubs that will take part in the rescheduling of games include Warri Wolves, Sunshine Stars, Heartland and Dolphins because of their continental assignments.
