A Director in the board, Ebere Amaraizu, told NAN in Enugu on Friday that the players’ insurance cover would take care of incidental injuries in the field of play during the league.
“Already, players will be playing under insurance scheme just like last season.
“The insurance scheme will cover NLO players in Divisions 1, 2 and 3,’’ he said.
Amaraizu, who oversees South-East activities in NLO, noted that the board had intensified its programme ahead of the commencement of the league season.
“The league body has conducted stadium inspection and clubs are currently registering their players on-line after the physical registration of players.
“The NLO on-line registration of players through its portal offers protection of players against poaching in line with the provisions of Transfer Marching System (TMS).
“As players cannot easily leave their clubs to another club without proper clearance channeled to the league secretariat,’’ he said.
According to him, currently most NLO teams are playing pre-season friendlies to keep their players in shape.
