The Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed the cancellation of the 2019/20 Nigeria Professional Football League season.

There would be no promotion to the top tier league from the Nigeria National League while no team from the NPFL would be relegated, the NFF said a statement.

The league was halted half way  indefinitely after match-day 25 in March,  due to COVID-19.

The federation stated that the clubs positions would be determined by Points Per Game. This would determine clubs that would represent the country in the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup.

The NPFL 2020/21 season will start from September/October 2020 and end May 2021 subject to the full reopening of the country and the approval of the health authorities.
