“It’s going to be a better competition than last season and that is why I urge participating teams to ensure that they complete their transfer registrations so that there won’t be any hitches ahead of the commencement of the league,” Maigidansanma said.
HFN president Samuel Ocheho has also promised that the league, in its fourth edition, will be better than previous editions.

“The Prudent Energy Handball Premier League 2021 will be better than the previous season and for us as a federation we thank Prudent Energy and Services for keeping faith with us for the past four years,” Ocheho said.
“This will afford us the opportunity to continue to discover new talents with great potential and help them to maximize it. We will not relent until we do so.”
