The Nigeria National League, NNL is to hold an EMERGENCY Congress o Saturday, January 30, 2021.

The decision for the Congress has become critical following the inability of the forty six(46) clubs to meet requirements for registration .

Only one club from the lot has met the registration conditions for the season at noon on Tuesday, just four days to the initial kick-off date fixed for the league.

This development has necessitated an adjustment in the kick off date for the new season earlier scheduled for Saturday, January 30, 2021.

And subject to Congress debate and ratification, the management of the league has fixed Wednesday, February 3, 2021 as the new kick off date.


In a press statement issued by the secretariat of the league, clubs were urged to “comply with registration formalities without further delay ON or BEFORE Monday 1st February,2021.”

The statement further warned that “The none compliance by any club means AUTOMATIC withdrawal from the League as enshrined in the NNL rule book.”

The emergency congress is billed to hold at the Salt Lake Hotel at Abakaliki, in Ebonyi State.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
