IMC orders Indefinite Freezing of Fixtures adjustments

Published

Following a raft of requests for fixtures rescheduling by a number of Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) clubs, the Interim Management Committee (IMC) says further approvals have been frozen indefinitely.


A circular signed by Davidson Owumi, the Head of Operations cited a directive from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) which frowned at the deluge of requests seen as threatening the integrity of the NPFL.


“Consequent upon the directive of the NFF, there would be no more rescheduling of matches either for political or logistics reasons. The fixtures has to be strictly adhered to”, the circular informed the clubs.
It went on to explain that the directive is in response to a chaotic demand for fixture changes that if not checked could undermine the values of the league.
Clubs have therefore been advised to do their utmost to meet up with their upcoming fixtures.
MatchDay 3 of the NPFL were concluded on Sunday with two other fixtures in Ikenne and Port Harcourt coming up on Tuesday.

NCF/PwC U17 Cricket Tourney: Federation Extends Starter packs to all States

In order to encourage all the states taking part in the 4th edition of the National U17 Cricket Championship powered by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the Nigeria Cricket Federation, ably led by Mr. Uyi Akpata,  is extending additional starter packs to all the states taking part in the playoffs across the 6-geo political zones of the country.

In a statement issued on Thursday by the NCF General Manager Emeka Igwilo said that the donation is a morale booster to the states for sustaining the game in their states.

According to the statement, this is coming after the distribution of two different consignments over the last three years. All the 36 states and the FCT got the initial consignment from the Bankstown Community, Australia. 

“After the distribution of the Equipment from Australia which was facilitated by ICC Africa, NCF also followed it up with the distribution of the NCF Customized equipment imported from outside the country and that one’s also imported through the ICC Criiio initiative. 

“The States, Schools, NGOs and Development officers that have been deploying the equipment into use have continued to receive booster packs to support their grassroot development and growth.  It has been a healthy development to support those that help NCF build their scorecard and NCF will not relent in its approach to get the States take ownership and responsibilities of growing the game in the country of over 200 million. 

“The Board of the Nigeria Cricket Federation during its Board meeting of 28th Dec 2022 resolved to sustain the growth by re-jigging the growth plan in line with the current projections. This will come during the Strategic Session/AGM when the Development Plan, submitted by the Development Committee to the NCF leadership, will be reviewed.”
