Nigeria League winners to get pay rise from N100m to N150m



Strategic partners to the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), GTI Asset Management & Trust Limited, have reassured all stakeholders and clubs involved in

the upcoming 2023/2024 season that the winner of the elite league will receive  N150m. This is higher than the   N100m Enyimba got as Nigeria’s current champions.

GTI/TNFF Head of Media and Publicity, Andrew Ekejiuba, gave this reassuring word in a press statement made available to sports journalists in Lagos on Friday.

He revealed that the company was stunned by some reports  on social media that there was no definite figure for the

price money in the upcoming season.


“This is contrary to the earlier clarification from the GMD of GTI, Abubakar Lawal in late July that GTI has upgraded the price money to N150m from the earlier N100m given to the winner last season,” Ekejiuba stated.

“On the issue of the OTT Live streaming of NPFL matches in the upcoming season,

GTI is delighted with what Propel Sports Africa has so far done in the past few weeks by deploying and training young Nigerians nationwide who will be manning these state-of-

the-art AI Cameras and the successful testing of these cameras ahead of the new season.

“Therefore, GTI will continue to work closely with the newly inaugurated Board of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) led by Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye towards a successful and seamless execution of the upcoming season,” Ekejiuba concluded.
