#HOUSEYARNS – HIGH OCTANE RIVALRY, MERRY AND RELIEF WELCOME NPFL 2016
It has been a long holiday but the wait is over, the Nigeria Professional Football
League is back as the 2016 season kicks off this weekend first with the fixture of
newly-promoted sides, Plateau United and Niger Tornadoes in Jos on Saturday. All
the other fixtures are scheduled for Sunday.
Across the land, the drums and the trumpets will resume their rhythmic beats that
backup exciting football action. It goes with our football, music. The club supporters
see their orchestra as an aspect of the competition, to inspire the players and ginger
the spectators for more support.
There was so much fun and excitement last season. The League Management
Company(LMC) kept the focus of the league on the people, engaging them
continuously through a number of community-based initiatives. The fans re-
discovered their game and kept coming. Centres like Akure bustled to the brim just
as venues like Kano, Aba, Enugu, Ibadan and others kept overflowing.
