Nigerian Football Is Content Stupid Says Sports Minister

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development Mr. Sunday Dare has said  football is 'content Stupid' insisting that  Nigerian Football Leagues canot thrive without Contents.

Dare made this assertion  during an inspection tour of  the Surulere National Stadium, Lagos currently undergoing rehabilitation.

According to the Minister, “Our football league must be 'Content Stupid'  to develop because football is content stupid. We watch the English Premier League, we are transported to Wembley through the power of television. It is  clear that  our domestic league cannot develop without content. 

"We have agreed with the  NFF and LMC that there must be content in our League. We may not be able to cover or show five or six matches,  but the content must be there. I have received an assurance from the LMC that there would be content. The content might be gradual, but there must be  some clear markers laid down, especially now that stadiums will be empty due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fans would be able to watch their teams play on television.
"Content must return  so that  our apex football league can develop and gain universal recognition", the  Minister concluded. 

The Sports Ministry and the  LMC have agreed on Sunday, 27th December, 2020  date for the  resumption of  the new NPFL season.
