Nigerian football partners, GTI wants a structured league



Strategic partners of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), GTI Group have revealed that their mission is to put in place a structured, reformed and transparent football ecosystem in the country working with the Interim Management Committee (IMC).

The Executive Director of GTI Asset Management & Trust Limited, Ine Nelson, gave the assurance while speaking to a section of the media recently in Lagos.

He affirmed that it is the vision of the company to also make the league contribute at least 0.5 percent to the nation’s GDP in the next couple of years.  

Ine noted that the league is a national asset which belongs to Nigerians and if well nurtured would blossom into big business in the country.

He further stressed that GTI’s involvement is already yielding dividends given the gains the NPFL has made in just a few months of the IMC coming onboard.

“GTI took up the challenge of restructuring the league at a time we felt NPFL deserves better attention from Corporate Nigeria and other football stakeholders in the country.


“What GTI has done in these few months using The Nigeria Football Fund as its vehicle, depicts a bright future for our beautiful game.

“Today our league is progressing massively and getting global attention, thanks to the Nigerian media.

“From available statistics, the NPFL is now very competitive, tough and by our projections in the next few years, we would be up there competing with some of the best leagues in the world.

“The performance of Rivers United FC at the ongoing CAF competition is a testimony that the quality of NPFL is on the rise,” Ine concluded.
