NPFL advises coaches on media engagement protocol

The Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL, has issued a practice directive to clubs reminding them of existing protocols for post-match media engagement by their technical Heads.

The NPFL Chief Operating Officer Davidson Owumi gave the reminder in a memo sent to clubs on Friday.

Owumi said strict adherence to the guidelines is imperative in developing and building the NPFL in line with international practices.

The memo also touched on the need for decorum in the conduct of the media and coaches, noting that, “beyond the mandatory participation, is the decorum expected at all times from the coaches and also the journalists.

The memo also admonished clubs to provide professional guidance for their coaches on how to comport themselves during post-match engagements with the media.

“Every club is invited to groom their Coaches in appropriate manners at such media events to avoid situations where the league is brought to disrepute by the unruly behaviour of a coach,” Owumi stated in the memo

“Rule C9 requires clubs to ensure the proper conduct of their players and officials at all times during matches.”
