LMC orders vaccination for season registration

Posted by on December 10, 2021 0


The League Management Company has made vaccination of players and officials one of the criteria for clubs ahead of the 2021/22 league season scheduled to kick off on December 17 across the country, The PUNCH has gathered.

The LMC during their extraordinary General Assembly Meeting on Tuesday approved the December 17 kickoff date for the league, while also confirming Davidson Owumi as the new Chief Executive Officer of the league body.

However, with the league set to return after a four-month break, the issues of COVID-19 vaccination have been brought to the fore.

A top official of a club in the NPFL who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity confirmed that COVID-19 vaccination was included as one of the criteria for club registration for the season.

“Vaccination of players and officials is already a condition for registration and the league is starting on the 17th,” the source told The PUNCH.

“Vaccination is one of the conditions for registration.

“I have been vaccinated; all our players and officials are vaccinated because, in my state, it was made a condition to be part of the state’s sports ministry. If there are new players that are yet to be vaccinated, that will be done before the start of the league.”

With the recent increase in COVID-19 infections and the discovery of the Omicron variant in the country, clubs will be hoping to get their players vaccinated before the start of the season.

It is however still uncertain if fans will be allowed into stadiums at the start of the 2021/22 season despite the LMC allowing about 30 per cent of fans into match venues at the tail end of the 2020/21 season.
