The board of Nigeria National League (NNL) has announced the postponement of the kick off date for the 2023/2024 league season.
The new season, originally planned to kick off on Saturday, October 28, according to the NNL, was postponed to enable clubs conclude registration for the new season.
According to a statement by the NNL, the board, in arriving at the decision, took into cognizance the inability of teams to meet up with the Wednesday, October 25 registration deadline because of the economic situation facing the country.
“We regret to announce that the 2023/2024 league season, originally planned to kick off this Saturday in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, has been postponed to a new date, which will be communicated to teams once clubs finish the formalisation of registration process.”
The statement explained that with the latest development, clubs are now advised to conclude their registration on November 3, 2023, noting that once registration is concluded, the board of NNL will announce a new date for the commencement of the league.
Teams are, however, warned that failure to meet the new registration date means non participation in the league.
