Sporting Lagos Football Club has achieved a momentous feat by securing promotion to the prestigious Nigeria Premier League (NPL).
The Lagos-based team displayed an impressive performance during their second game at the highly anticipated Nigeria National League (NNL) Super Eight tournament held in Asaba.
In a highly contested encounter against Abeokuta Stormers, Sporting Lagos emerged victorious with an outstanding 2-0 win.
The team’s remarkable victory propelled their points tally to an impressive six, securing their promotion with a game to spare.
This remarkable accomplishment marks a significant milestone in the club’s short yet illustrious history, as they have secured promotion to the NPL just one year after their inception.
Sporting Lagos has consistently showcased exceptional form throughout the NNL Super Eight, netting an impressive three goals while conceding none.
All eyes are now eagerly set on their final match against Heartland F.C, a game of immense importance that will determine the team’s ultimate fate and potentially crown them as champions.
While Sporting Lagos rejoices in their promotion, another well known contender eyeing a triumphant return to the Nigerian top flight is Kano Pillars.
After enduring relegation last season, the team is resolute in its quest to redeem itself and reclaim its rightful position.
With three promotion slots available (two in the Northern Conference and one in the Southern Conference), Kano Pillars currently stands as the frontrunner in Group A.
They have impressively amassed six points from two matches, closely pursued by Kastina United, who holds second place with three points.
The outcomes of their final group games will determine the fate of Kano Pillars and potentially grant them the coveted promotion they strive for.
