Nigeria's premier League rated best in Africa

The management of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) said on Saturday in Abuja that it had made plans to ensure its 2011/2012 season ends on Sept. 7.

According to its Media Officer, Emman Njoku, all matches of the season’s final weekend, Week 38, will be played on Sept. 7 to bring the current season to a close.

“We have made all the plans for this, coming from the way we have ensured that all outstanding matches have been concluded up to this point,’’ he told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The league spokesman said that it was in the realisation of this that all the outstanding rescheduled matches had been scheduled to hold on Aug. 23.

“The arrangements have been made that the remaining matches would be played next week to leave us with only the final weekend matches.

“These matches include fixtures such as Warri Wolves versus Rising Stars, ABS FC versus Sunshine Stars and Sharks versus Ocean Boys,’’ he said.

Njoku also said the league season was ending on a Friday so as to enable its broadcast partners, Supersport Television, to take full part in the activities.

“It is because we want them to beam live the Week 38 star match as well as the presentation of trophy to the league champions.

“Saturdays are usually dedicated to European leagues on Supersport channels, we just have to move our own show to Friday. ’’

The trio of table leaders – Kano Pillars, Lobi Stars and Rangers International – was presently locked in a battle for the season’s title in the NPL.
