The Nigeria Premier League, NPL insists all players must be insured by clubs before registration to play this season.
Media and Communications Director of the NPL, Emeka Nwani told that those are a few conditions clubs must meet before they are registered for the league.
“Aside insurance and medicals, we are directing that all clubs have feeder teams of truly teenage players and have the list of feeder team players submitted to us along with their registration materials,” Nwani said.
“We are also insisting that the clubs do not owe any players from a previous season and they must show proof of payment to all players or they won’t be registered.”
Registration of clubs for the Nigeria Premier League ends on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 and the season kicks off on Saturday with a star match between Kaduna United and Kano Pillars.
The League however, will not kick off on Saturday, October 23, 2010 because there is no body to select referees for games.
The body with the sole responsibility of picking referees for matches, the Referees Appointment Committee is under the Nigeria Football Federation but they were dissolved some time back alongside other committees.
The NFF failed to reconstitute the committee and as such the League had to be postponed by the NPL.
The League already has IGI as its official insurance partner while Marine Medical Services serve as its official health care partner
