The need to have the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matches on TV has been stressed by former Super Eagles coach, Festus Adegboye Onigbinde.
In recent interview with Complete Sports, Onigbinde called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) as well as the League Management Company (LMC) to ensure that local sports return back to TV.
Since the the former TV rights holders of the league, Super Sport pulled out of deal with NFF months back, NPFL matches have not been airing on television.
Speaking on this, Onigbinde said:
“I’m Not Privy To The Details Of The Sponsorship Agreement Between Aiteo Group And The Nigeria Football Federation,” Onigbinde Said Of The New Sponsorship Deal For The Federation Cup.
“The Company Has Taken Charge Of The Salaries Of The Coaches Of The National Teams And The Federation Cup, So I’m Cautiously Optimistic About The Prospect Of More Good News For Football In Nigeria.
“The Professional Football League Has Not Been On National Television. With The Federation Cup Possibly Going To Be On Television With The New Sponsorship Drive, It Will Be Nice To Also Have The NPFL Back To Television.”
