The Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL), is set to start on December 27.
The League like all other Leagues in the world was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But even when other Leagues in the world came back without fans, the Nigerian League has remained in the cooler.
Youth and Sports Minister, Sunday Dare confirmed on Friday while briefing Journalists at the National Stadium, Surulere in Lagos that the NPFL will restart on December 27.
The cherry news was applauded even by Journalists at the venue as the Minister disagreed that Nigerian football was not dead but agreed that interest in Nigerian football has waned. (Vanguard)
