The kick-off date for football activities of the Namibia Premier League (NPL) will be decided next month when the NPL holds its elective congress to choose new headship.
NPL announced this yesterday and further confirmed that all 16 league clubs unanimously adopted the NPL’s new constitution at its Extra-ordinary General Assembly held in the capital on Wednesday.
At Wednesday’s general assembly, the clubs also adopted the new manual on rules and regulations to govern the game for the 2017 season.
It is at Wednesday’s general assembly where clubs collectively agreed to hold the NPL’s Elective Congress on 2 September, where a new league chairperson and an executive committee would be elected and installed. Once the leadership is elected and confirmed, congress would then move on to collectively decide on the kick-off date for the league.
“Arrangements for nominations of candidates have also already been put in motion, including the appointment of an independent electoral officer to oversee and ensure that the election process is free from any undue influence,” stated the NPL’s statement.
