Lagos - Players of Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt are to resume camping after a 3-day break granted them by the management to enable team members to celebrate the Christmas festivities.
Media Officer of the club, China Acheru, said in a statement on Thursday that the management granted them a short break because of the tasks ahead in the New Year.
"Yes there is still some uncertainty as regards when the league will start but we are sure it will be a long season ahead, so there was no need keeping them in camp throughout the festive season.
"A three day break from December 24 to December 27 wouldn’t have hurt the team and that is why we decided to give them some time to spend with their families," the statement said.
"We expect them in camp from December 27 and training resumes on December 28," it added.
Dolphins won the league in the 2010/11 season but in their title defence in the last season, they needed a win against Rising Stars on the last day of the campaign to avoid relegation.
Dolphins have won the league title three times and FA Cup four times in its 22-year history.
