The chairman of the Nigeria Premier League board Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye has urged the club owners to show cooperation with Propel Sports Africa, the company that will live stream matches of the fast approaching NPFL season.
Elegbeleye made the appeal while speaking with the representatives of the 20 NPFL clubs in Abuja ahead of the board’s Annual General Meeting.
“It gladens my heart to again harp on the Broadcast Streaming deal with Propel Sports Africa which has as of today, deployed cameras to ten venues as a start-up. They plan to have a camera in each Stadium in the long run while we work out modalities to move cameras from one location to the nearest. So far the AI Cameras have been deployed, installed, and tested in Lagos, Ibadan, Benin, Uyo, and Aba. Other locations are Ilorin, Jos, Gombe, Katsina, and Kano. The distribution covers the geographical zones. In the days ahead, there will be a big announcement coming on the Broadcast Streaming deal.
Let me also use this very opportune occasion to appeal to our club leaders here to offer all required support to the Propel Sports Africa team as they start. Firstly is that all individual club streaming activity is no longer allowed as clubs will be offered the data of all their matches including individual analytics for each player”
The NPFL is scheduled to start on September 9th and it is expected that all clubs will play the straight league format
