Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, has said that the Nigerian Professional Football League Television is expected to generate N18 billion annually.
The 2020/21 Nigerian Professional Football League resumed on 27th December, 2020 after being shut down since March. This news has received a lot of buzz from Nigerians at home and in the diaspora.
The NFF President, who spoke on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme, said he and his administration projected making N18 billion from the NPFL TV annually, as there were plans to make the NPFL TV an integral part of the economy.
“We are projecting about almost N18 billion that we will be making from it every year… It is going to have a huge impact on the economy because we are looking at an economy beyond oil, beyond other areas,” he said.
The NPFL TV is free to the air at the moment. It will be free till 21, January, 2021, then after it’ll require a #1500 subscription.
The NFF boss sought the support of Nigerians. “We appeal to Nigerians to give us support. Our traducers, come and join us. Let us build this together.” he added.
