All Premier League matches to hold on Saturday because of Nigeria's match against Namibia

The League organisers have ordered all teams to play their matches on Saturday to avoid any clash with Nigeria's match against Namibia on Sunday

Nigeria Premier League (NPL) Executive Secretary, Tunji Babalola has disclosed that all Week 30 matches will be played on Saturday.

Babalola noted that they decided to have all matches played on Saturday instead of having some on Sunday because of the World Cup qualifying game between the Super Eagles and Namibia.

"We have taken this decision because we don't want a situation where matches will be going on when the Super Eagles will be in action on Sunday.

"So we have informed all the clubs that the matches will be played on Saturday and then they can relax and watch the Super Eagles take on Namibia in Calabar the next day.

“I am optimistic that this season will finish in good time. We are taking the pains to remove every bottleneck that might be on the way which will in turn disturb us.

"If the league ends when it is supposed to, then we all can rest and start preparing for next season on a good note.

"But I am sure everything will go on very well so that what happened last season will not repeat itself," Babalola added.
