Glo Premier League takes three weeks break

20 May 2015, 11:40Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Glo Premier League will embark on a three week break after week 10 matches scheduled for Wednesday, the League Management Company (LMC) has announced.

In a circular to the NPFL clubs, Chairman of the LMC Mallam Shehu Dikko said the break period would be used amongst other things to carry out spot checks on clubs’ compliance with the NFF Clubs Certification Regulations and also allow the clubs Managers some space to engage meaningfully with the new political leadership in their respective states.

“You may wish to recall that we started the league with blanket provisional waiver to the clubs to allow them comply with all registration requirements  before Match Day 9 when a review will be conducted by the LMC. The break period is also a time to revisit club stadium facilities to remedy observed defects as the clubs have so far operated with provisional certificates," the LMC Chairman added.

Mallam Dikko said the break had also become necessary to allow the club managers time to "acquaint themselves and engage meaningfully with their respective new Governor-owners."

The League will now resume June 14 with games of Match Day 11 originally scheduled for Sunday, May 24, 2015.

Clubs, fans and sponsors have been assured that the break will not affect the date on which the final games of the season will be played, which is still November 15 as originally scheduled. However, the midseason break for the second transfer window will now start on July 19 as against the initial July 10. The second round games will commence on August 2 with Match Day 20.
