LMC preaches reform at World Leagues Forum
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) will tomorrow in Paris, France join other world football leagues at the World Leagues Forum to discuss the future of the league in the scheme of the emerging FIFA structure.
It is the second edition of the World Leagues Forum (WLF) and Nigeria will be represented by the Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC), Mallam Shehu Dikko, who said it will be another opportunity to seek global partnership and support for the internal reforms in NPFL and also the on-going campaign to arrest capital flight from domestic sports industry to Europe, which has denied the League the right kind of funding.
“We will use the platform to further drive the message of on-going internal reforms in the NPFL and also the case for better funding of the league and clubs for improved players’ welfare,” Dikko told npfl.ng shortly before departing for the congress.
Organizers of the congress disclosed that all the four candidates for the next elections for the FIFA President’s office have confirmed their participation at the meeting at which they are expected to unveil their plans for world football with emphasis on the football leagues.
