NPFL 2020/2021: Dakkada FC Complete Medicals

A head of the commencement of the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season, Dakkada Football Club of Uyo have been given a clean bill of health after all their players undertook and passed routine medicals. The checks which took place at the Nest of Champions recently, were carried out on all retained and newly recruited players of the 2018/ 2019 Nigeria National League (NNL). The Uyo-based outfit were given the all-clear after all the results of the multifarious tests conducted came through, including ECG, full blood count, cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system, echocardiography and liver and kidney function. Speaking shortly after the painstaking exercise, the Chairman of Dakkada FC, Aniedi Dickson, said: "We were here today in compliance with LMC-stipulated guidelines for participation in the upcoming new NPFL season. Our players are cherished assets and we are not leaving any stone unturned in paying priority attention to their health needs because it is our intention to ensure that they are in tip-top shape ahead of the new season. As the 2020/2021 season beckons, Dakkada FC which had an impressive debut NPFL season last year have been perfecting pre-season plans in the outskirts of Uyo, the Akwa Ibom capital. The League Management Company (LMC) has confirmed that five substitutions will be allowed in the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL)season. The Nigeria Football Federation earlier this month gave the go-ahead for the resumption of the country's elite men's football league from November 15, eight months after it was suspended due to COVID-19 outbreak in the country. The chairman of LMC, Shehu Dikko, reasoned that players might experience several injuries due to a long spell of inactivity which makes the five substitutions necessary in the incoming season. NPFL clubs are currently preparing for the league restart with several teams participating in different pre-season tournaments across the country. The NFF has insisted that all clubs must adhere strictly to the COVID-19 guidelines as directed by the Federal Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) perfecting pre-season plans in the outskirt of Uyo, the state capital.
