The NNL has followed the footsteps of the apex Nigeria league by ensuring that no club will be relegated, as 8 Clubs will gain promotion to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Nigeria National League’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place at the Nera Hotel in Jabi, Abuja, on Saturday night with a proposal to promote 8 teams to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The proposal is still expected to be submited to the League Management Company (LMC) before a meeting between top stakeholders will be convened to discuss the final outcome of the proposal.
The eight teams pencilled down for promotion include, Gombe Utd, Kogi Utd, Kada City, Real Stars, Bendel Insurance, Delta Force, 3SC and Remo Stars.
The Congress also approved the 2018/2019 season to kick off on January 19, 2019, in an abridged format of 4 groups.
