The management of the Nigerian National League have announced that the resumption of the 2019/2020 league season has been postponed indefinitely. This announcement was made yesterday, three months after the league went on break.

The NNL is the second division in the Nigerian football league tier.

In a letter addressed to clubs and state FAs dated March 12, 2020, and signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Lawrence Katken, the Nigerian National League management said that the season cannot resume as planned without giving reasons for the indefinite postponement.

The earlier statement to clubs had said that the season would resume today, March 14, 2020. Today (March 13, 2020) makes it 83 days since the Nigeria National League officially went on break on December 22, 2019. The proposed date for resumption has been shifted twice.

It was first shifted on January 10, 2020, before the indefinite postponement yesterday with no certain date in view for the continuation of the 2019/2020 season.
