Dates For Rescheduled Fixtures In The 2015/2016 NPFL Season


Fixtures involving the three Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clubs with continental engagements have been reschedule to accommodate the return leg of the second round of the two Confederation of African Football (CAF) Club competitions which takes place this weekend. The fixtures didn’t follow the two weeks return leg format and are holding just a week after the first legs played last weekend.

Salihu Abubakar, the League Management Company (LMC) Chief Operating Officer announced the adjustments in a communication to the clubs and explained that it has further adjusted the already rescheduled midweek fixtures already billed for Wednesday, 16th March 2016.

According to Abubakar, “these changes would not affect the end of season dates because we have made the adjustments utilizing dates that were in the first place deliberately kept free as a fall back for unforeseen situations such as these. Most of the fixtures will hold during the midseason break and thus will not alter our calendar as such”.

Nasarawa United, Enyimba International were to have played outstanding fixtures from Match Day 2 on Wednesday, 16th March, 2016 but both teams are billed to travel out late Tuesday for their continental dates, hence the matches are now to hold on 30th March, 2016. It therefore means that the Match Day 2 fixtures: Enyimba vs Shooting Stars, FC IfeanyiUbah vs Shooting Stars and Wikki Tourists vs Warri Wolves will hold on 30th March, 2016. 

However, the Match Day 8 fixtures involving the clubs and which were to hold midweek of Wednesday, 23th March, 2016 has been shifted by one day to 24th March, 2016 to allow the clubs travel time after their return from continental engagements. These fixtures are: Nasarawa United vs Ikorodu United, Akwa United vs Warri Wolves and Enyimba vs Plateau United. The adjustment confirmed that the mid-season break will hold from 23rd May to 4th June, 2016.
