Reigning Glo Premier League champions Kano Pillars and 2014 Federation Cup losing finalists Dolphins FC will open this year’s Pre-Season tournament, which has been extended to cater to two junior national teams, the U-23 and U-20.
The Super 6 tournament starts on Saturday, January 24 at the Abuja National Stadium through February 1.
The League Management Company says all matches will be live on Super Sport and will be played three times on every match day, beginning at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.
Federation Cup holders Enyimba and Warri Wolves round off the numbers of top-flight outfits in action in the season’s curtain-raiser, organised to prepare clubs for continental championships. Nigeria’s U-23 and U-20 have been included to increase the numbers of participating teams to 6 this year.
Both Pillars and Enyimba will represent the country in the Caf Champions League while Dolphins and Wolves are Confederation Cup-bound. The Olympic Team (Dream Team VI) and the Flying Eagles are building up for an All-African Games qualifier and the African Youth Championship (AYC).
