Do Nigerian Premier League clubs do trials for youngsters?

Founded 47 years ago, the Nigeria Professional Football League is the highest level of the Nigerian football system in which 20 teams take part in the League, as it is done in many parts of the world.

But unlike in Europe where private investors are the owners of most teams, it is not like that in Nigeria as 90 percent of the topflight clubs are owned by the government.

The League Management Company (LMC) are currently the governing body in charge of the Nigerian Football League headed by Shehu Dikko and Ndukka Iraboh.
