Akwa United Football Club of Uyo has invited players and members of the technical crew for contract renegotiation ahead of the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League Season.
According to the Media Officer of the club Mfon Patrick, all players and technical crew are to report back to the club’s camp in Uyo from Monday, August 24, 2020.
Players and members of the technical crew have been on break since the suspension of all football activities in Nigeria in March and subsequent cancellation of the football season due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The invited players and technical crew are expected to arrive Uyo on or before Monday, August 24 by 8am 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.”
The media officer also added: “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.”
Chairman of Akwa United, Elder Paul Bassey, says the players will properly be educated on the “code of conduct” and the changing laws of the game.”
“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 Promise Keepers finished the 2019/2020 NPFL season on 6th place after 25 rounds of matches before the suspension and subsequent cancellation of the football season.
The two-time Federation champions 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.
