The National Council of Sports has again postponed the 20th edition of the National Sports Festival to April 2021.

The decision was taken after the meeting of the National Council of Sports held virtually on Monday.

Prior to the latest development, the Sports festival was scheduled to hold from February 14 to 28 in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Sources present at the meeting told VANTAGE NEWS that a definite date has not been fixed for the festival but it that it has been billed to hold in April.

It was learnt that all the members of the council accepted the decision taken largely due to funding issues.

The sports festival was initially billed for March 22 to April 2, 2020 but was postponed due to COVID-19.

It was then moved to December before being postponed to February 14 to 28, 2021.

Over 11,000 athletes are expected to participate at the festival.
