NPFL 2023/2024 Season to kick off August 26

Season to kick off

The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season 2023/2024 will begin on August 26.

Honourable Gbenga Elegbeleye, Chairman of the NPFL, also revealed the winner, who will receive N150 million.

Speaking after the NFF President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, inaugurated the newly constituted board of the Nigeria Professional Football League on Wednesday in Abuja, Honourable Elegbeleye stated that the kick-off date is sacred and that all arrangements have been completed.

“The kick off-date is definite, we have taken that will ensure the smooth sailing of the new season with the intention to align with the European season. We hope the season ends on schedule with consideration of other football programs of the Nigeria Football Federation,” Elegbeleye told

“Last season, the league winners got N100 million as prize money. This season, we are offering an improved package of N150 million with some of the prize money earmarked for facility improvement and players’ welfare. We want every club to update their stadia and improve their players’ remuneration for better performance

“All the stadia classified as unfit to host NPFL matches remain banned, subject to inspection while that of the newly promoted clubs will also be inspected before the season starts. Any stadium that doesn’t meet the set standard will not be allowed to host any league game.”

On officiating, the NPFL Chairman says that he is hoping that referees who did very well last season would do better this season, adding that the success of last season was majorly due to the prompt payment of indemnities and allowances of referees and other match officials.

“All through last season, we ensured that match officials got their dues two days before a game. We shall continue like that this season and will not hesitate to recommend any referee found wanting to the appropriate authorities for disciplinary actions,” Elegbeleye concluded.
