NPL may fine Ocean Boys N15m for stopping live broadcast of match

THE Nigeria Premier League (NPL) may fine Ocean Boys as much as N15 million for refusing to allow the live broadcast of its Week 11 match against Kano Pillars.

A top official of NPL informed MTNFootball.com that the fine for refusing a television broadcast is N15 million. Supersport is the broadcast partner of the NPL. In its defence, the Bayelsa State team said it refused the TV cameras because it was yet to receive any money from the sale of the league’s TV rights.

“There will be no TV coverage of our matches until we have received our own share from the sale of the TV rights for the league,” an official said.

As a result of this move, the match between Ocean Boys and Pillars was not beamed live yesterday. Several other clubs have also been known to stop the broadcast of their home games for various reasons only to be slammed heavy fines by the NPL.
