The second half of Nigerian Premier League [NPL] resumes on Sunday, the Association of Premier League Club
Chairmen and Managers have confirmed.
However, the Glo League organisers have cited some fixture alterations ahead of the week 20 schedule due to congestions affecting clubs still challenging for the 2014 Federation Cup title which is still at the last 16 stage.
As much as 10 Premier League clubs are still in the competition whose Round of 16 matches will be played today, while the quarter-final games come up on Wednesday next week.
But to avert inconveniences on clubs involved, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the League Management Company (LMC), Salihu Abubakar has announced a slight adjustment in fixtures for Week 20.
“Sequel to the change in Federation Cup match days, we have been constrained to also slightly adjust our fixtures to accommodate Premier League teams involved in the Federation Cup Round of 16 and quarter-finals games,” he said.
“Matches in Jalingo between FC Taraba
and Gombe United and that in Warri
between Warri Wolves and Kaduna United will hold as scheduled on Sunday while on Wednesday, July 23, the other fixtures will be played but excluding those clubs that qualify for the Federations Cup quarter finals.”
