Alloy Chukwuemeka, Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Club Owners Association, who confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday, said the General Assembly had been scheduled for Dec. 7.

Chukwuemeka said the kick-off date was agreed at a meeting held in Lagos between the LMC Executives, Club Owners Association representatives and LMC Directors.

There would be a one-week break before the resumption of the second round, which is expected to start on March 27, and end the season with Match day 38 fixtures on July 17, 2022.

The NPFL Club Owners scribe also revealed that the LMC had introduced an asymetrical fixture list for the 2021/2022 campaign.
