Nigerian League was known as the Nigerian/National Football League in the 1970s, then changed to the Nigerian National League – First Division from the late 1970s to the early 90s, before switching to the Nigerian Professional League in the early 90s.
Shortly after, between 1993 and 2000, the name “Nigerian Premier League” was adopted for the first time, as well as from 2004 to 2013, after being renamed the “Nigerian Premiership” for three years between the years 2000 and 2003.
The newly launched logo for the Nigeria Premier Football League ushers in a new dawn to Nigerian football, following waves of sponsorships, TV broadcast deals, Committee reshuffle, and a new sports ministry dispensation, to mention but a few.
