The Nigeria National League NNL which is the feeder league to the NPFL will kick of tomorrow across the country.

Quick History
From 1997-2011, the league has been split into 1A for Northern teams and 1B for southern teams. The top two from each division are promoted to the Nigerian Premier League the next season. The exceptions were the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons where there were four divisions of eight teams each, with each division winner winning promotion. Up to four teams in each division are relegated each season to the Amateur First Division . The league was renamed June 19, 2008. In 2012 the league expanded from 32 to 36 teams with 2 more teams promoted. The league used the 2006 format, with four divisions of nine teams each, with division winners receiving automatic promotion. In 2012-13, it went back to two divisions of sixteen. For the 2015 season, it use four divisions of eight teams.

This move by this NNL Clubs would start up a trend of having properly kitted teams, presentable to the outside world and make the teams more marketable, thereby improving the NNL.

Owu is really doing a good job. I hope they start making kits for the various National teams. although competitors are emerging in form of Cone sportswear and Haggai

Owu should make more of bold, bright and plain jerseys.
too much of bold stripes and dull colours are not beautiful in my own opinion.

NNL seems to be gaining more popularity Now.... It will be very difficult for any relegated team from NPFL to gain promotion!

Just look at the Group B

Group B
Bayelsa United vs Osun United.
Abia Comets vs Warri Wolves.
Akwa Starlets vs Unicem Rovers.
AS Racine vs Papilo FC.
Insurance FC vs My People FC.
Crown FC vs Ikorodu United.
Delta Force vs Heartland FC.
First Bank vs Go Round FC.
Dreams FC (Nnewi United) vs Gateway United

Definitely group of Death!

Picking just two of these teams:
Bayelsa Utd, Crown FC, Ikorodu Utd, Heartland Fc, Warri wolves even Osun United will be very.

Warri wolves will be counting their loss now....their poor attitude last season got them here....

I will be expecting Ikorodu Utd to consolidate on their NPFL experience last season.. that's if they still have some of their key players (One or two has moved to MFM FC).

it will be difficult to rule out the chances of Crown Fc...they performed well at the Federation cup last season.

First bank are always competing for promotion,

very tough I tell u, Gateway were close to promotion Last season. Npfl experience should help ikorodu, Osun signed Chigozie Obasi the former u17 player from the 2013 sets they also signed a guy from 3sc. Heartland and Bayelsa united are ex NPFL champions. warri wolves played caf competition some seasons ago. these are big big names in Nigerian football. am still waiting for stationary stores to return.

lest I forget Crown Fc gave Fc ifeanyi ubah a run for their money in the semi final of the federation cup last year that was coated in controversy.

According to Godwin Enakhena on twitter, the NNL has been reminded of the ban on Giwa fc by the NNF, therfore Giwa fc won't take part in NNL this season.

"The NNL Mgt has a letter from the NFF affirming the ban of Giwa Fc from all football activities in Nigeria. Giwa fc won't play in the NNL https:///6IvvQdpD5A"
