The uncertainty surrounding the final league standings for the 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has been cleared by the League Management Company (LMC) following a definitive release on Friday.
The table released by the league organisers shows Plateau United, Enyimba and Rivers United are the three top teams respectively with the LMC using the Points Per Game (PPG) and Weighted Points Per Game (WPPG) methodology to decide the NPFL final places.
Plateau United and Enyimba will represent Nigeria in the CAF Champions League while Rivers United will join Kano Pillars in the CAF Confederations Cup for the 2020/2021 season.
Kano Pillars were put forward as Nigeria representatives in CAF’s second-tier competition by virtue of winning last season’s AITEO Cup.
