NFF

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says no Professional League match will not be played until medical facilities and personnel are provided during league games.

This follows the death of a Nasarawa United defender, Chineme Martins, who slumped during an NPFL clash against Katsina United in Lafia on Sunday.

According to the NFF, the directive was an immediate step to ensure that a repeat of the incidence that played out does not occur.

The NFF noted that all match commissioners and the host FA were to carry out inspection of all facilities as well as test run them before any match.

The NFF condoled with family of the footballer and other Stakeholders at large, expressing regrets over the incidence.
