The 20 clubs in the Nigeria Premier Football League will get a take-off grant of 10 million naira each as the organisers announced that the 2023/24 season will begin Saturday September 30 after double postponements, just as the prize money for the season has been increased from 100 million naira to 150 million naira.

This comes almost three weeks after its last postponement, which was indefinite.

In a circular sent to all the clubs and signed by the Chief Operating Officer of the league, Davidson Owumi, which was obtained by newsmen, the NPFL board said the league was commencing with the hope of securing the deals which forced its postponement.

After the initial postponement from August 26 to September 9, the league was supposed to kick off with a fixture between 3SC and Plateau United in Ibadan while other games were scheduled for the following Sunday.
