Every team in the Nigeria Premier Football League has a moniker, some of which were given by their own followers, some of which were initially utilized as abuses by the fans of other teams, and some of which were derived from state customs or history.

The NPFL, Nigeria’s premier football league competition, has changed over time.

The league has a unique characteristic this year because the 20 participating teams are split into two groups (Group A and Group B), as opposed to simply one group in previous years.

Three of the best teams from each group will advance to the Super Six after 18 rounds of matches against one another, from which one side will be declared the NPFL23 champion.
