NPFL 2021-2022: Basic teams information, home ground, coaches and more

Published:

As expected, Nigeria’s topflight league has begun on an interesting note with twenty three goals recorded in the matchday one of the season.

The action is set to continue this weekend with some action packed matches set to go down.

However, due to some announcements from the league body about banning some stadiums that hitherto hosts NPFL matches, a couple of changes has been made to some venues of some matches this season, and this means that a few clubs will play outside of their traditional home grounds.

Also, three new teams were promoted from the NNL to the NPFL and definitely, fans of the league would want to be brought up to speed about these newcomers in the league.

This is why we’ve compiled the names of coaches of all the twenty teams in the league, their home grounds and the possible changes that may come mid season.
