The League Management Company (LMC), organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), have settled for November 3 as a new kick-off date for the 2019/2020 NPFL season.

According to the LMC, the league will revert to its original format of the 20 club sides represented in a single NPFL log.

During the course of the season, which will run from November to May, each club will play in a double round-robin system.

They will face each other once at their home stadium and once at that of each of their opponents, for 38 games each.
