NPFL sends club administrators/officials to stands during league games

Posted : 22 March 2024

In another step to ensure a successful conclusion of the 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) season, which has entered its final stretch, the league organizers have issued two practice directives to prevent disruptive behavior.

In two separate memos to clubs signed by Davidson Owumi, the Chief Operating Officer, attention was drawn to protocols guiding sitting on the technical bench and the proper conduct of Ball Boys.

Frowning upon observed deviations from the established protocol on the use of the technical bench, the memo noted, “We would like to remind all clubs of the proper usage of the technical bench, which is reserved strictly for substitute players, coaches, and backroom staff with defined roles during matches.”

The memo warned that Club Chairmen and General Managers must refrain from sitting on the technical bench during matches.

Regarding the untoward behavior of Ball Boys disrupting the flow of matches, the NPFL called for an end to this growing trend.

“Such actions, including withholding balls and delaying the return of balls to the field, are completely unacceptable.

“We must emphasize that these actions not only go against the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship but also constitute a clear breach of Rule 1.1 of the Frameworks and Rules.”

Clubs were reminded that, in accordance with the rules, a fine of N1m would be imposed on erring clubs.
