Meanwhile, it has been 170 days and counting since ball was last kicked in top-flight and there’s been a change at the top.
The League Management Company (LMC), the defunct organizers of the league, have been replaced by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) led by Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye.
Here though, http://aclsports.com compiles for you the twenty teams and simple but crucial information regarding the head coach and home grounds of the participating teams for the upcoming campaign.
Following the latest round of club licensing, a number of clubs will play outside of their traditional home grounds and with the scarcity of information, our Football Writer Samuel Areo has been able to curate the information for you.
