Nigeria Nationwide League One (NLO) is set to partner NLO clubs on football administration and development in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by Martin Prickett, Head of Education, Crystal Palace FC, as he said that the relationship with NLO is aimed to foster strong bond between Crystal Palace and the Nigerian clubs at the grassroot level.
To this effect, the club will be welcoming the first batch of coaches and managers in NLO by February next year, where they will attend training sessions, presentations and watch matches throughout their stay.
“As part of this visit we are aiming to further nurture and develop coaches from Nigeria and provide them with more exposure to football development in the UK,” Prickett said.
In a related development, an excited chairman of NLO, Mohammed Alkali said the NLO is focused on improving the quality of football in Nigeria in line with the policies of the present board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), adding that the partnership with Crystal Palace will further bring transformation to the clubs, whose ownership is mainly private individuals.
