Mountain Of Fire & Miracle Football Club (MOF) Nearly Won Nigeria's Top League by RoyalBlak007: 2:46pm On Dec 26, 2018
A Nigerian football team that came from obscurity to nearly win the country's top division put their success down to a no sex, long hair, diving or tattoos policy.

Mountain of Fire and Miracle Football Club (MOF), one of the biggest teams in the Nigerian version of the Premier League - has some of the strictest rules for footballers on the planet.

Players from the Christian team have to live in a church seven days a week and are banned from taking drugs, drinking, gambling or smoking.

They are also told not to win freekicks or penalties by diving and faking injuries under the club's strict code of conduct.

The team emerged from obscurity 11 years ago and were close to winning the Nigerian Premier League last year, finishing second, but were just pipped at the post.

It’s a football team and that’s what they are.

How much are they being paid? Hope their player will not end their careers in the same team?

LadyF needs Apple iTunes gift cards $10-$100 denominations. Rate is dope!!

Lol...Pure nonsense!

These guys (MFM) live in a cramped out hostel in Bolaji Omupo Pedro. Their team bus is an eyesore and below standard for a "professional football club" in the 21st century. And yes they are poorly paid. Everything about the club reeks of unprofessionalism.

when will nigeria get sense? op didn't mention the tactics they use, their star players and manager, he only talked about how they live in church and pray before matches like those things win football matches. Messi has tattoos, cr7 has children out of wedlock but both of them are GOATs


nigerians should understand that religion has nothing to do with football
