THE Nigeria Premier League (NPL) will now restart on Wednesday, April 6, as against this weekend.
NPL executive secretary, Tunji Babalola, told MTNFootball.com that the shift in dates was as a result of this weekend’s international games involving both the Super Eagles and the country’s Olympic team.
“Several clubs have asked for their matches to be postponed because they have players in the training camps of both teams,” said Babalola.
he Eagles will host Ethiopia in a Nations Cup qualifier on Sunday, a day after Nigeria’s U-23 team would have hosted their Equatorial Guinea in Benin City.
NPL matches will also not be played for three weekends in April because of general elections in the country.
Dolphins top the NPL by the halfway point with 43 points from 19 matches.
Enyimba are the defending champions, but languish in 10th place with 29 points.
