Nigeria's season begins on October 7 this year, a couple of weeks earlier than usual due to a packed schedule.

Nigeria's Cricket new season will kick off on Oct. 7, according to the president of the Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF).

Kwesi Sagoe said the federation has decided to begin the 2007/2008 season earlier than previous years because of a very tight schedule in the coming months which will see several local competitions that include the Iris Smart Technologies (CCC) League and the Super Four.

Sagoe said apart from the tight domestic schedule, Nigeria will be hosting the Second North/West African Cricket Tournament sometime in April or May next year, Lagos-based the Guardian reported Wednesday.
