As football clubs in Nigeria continue to wait for the official resumption date for the 2020/2021 football season to be announced by the league organisers, the management of Akwa United football Club has invited all her players for contract renegotiation with the club in Uyo from Monday 24th August 2020.
Players and members of the technical crew have been on break since March 2020 following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, and the management has directed all the players to report to the club’s camp on or before Monday 24th August 2020 by Eight O’clock in the morning.
The Players have been asked to come for profiling and the signing of relevant contract papers and attestation for proper registration ahead of the new football league season, following the need to renew some of the contracts that had elapsed when the league was officially cancelled by the organisers early this month.
New players who have been contacted by the club are to report with their agents/intermediaries to discuss personal terms and undergo medical examination ahead of penning their acceptance documents.
According to the Chairman of the club Elder Paul Bassey, “while in Uyo, the players will be made to undergo sessions on the club’s Code of Conduct and the ever-changing laws of the game”.
The two-time federation Cup Champions ended the 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League season in 6th place after twenty-five rounds of matches before the indefinite suspension/cancellation of the league by the league organisers due to coronavirus pandemic.
The Promise Keepers recently decontaminated their camp/office space in line with the precautionary measures as directed by the National Centre for Disease Control NCDC, in preparation for the commencement of the new NPFL season.
