What We do
The Nigerian Rugby League is all about the rugby
A Peek into the future
Achieving the above will propel NRLA into the global stage and set us aside from many other national sports.
The NRLA is working on adding several other international partnerships to the league clubs. Our existing clubs in Kano and upcoming and existing (without partners) elsewhere would be affiliated with an international club in due course. Naturally this is instrumental in raising the game in Nigeria as the support to be provided by the international clubs would be invaluable.
We are already working on contracts for players to further their careers by joining teams in the UK and Australia in the first instance. This would come in the form of contracts with Academies, feeder clubs for professional clubs and top ranked amateur clubs. The international clubs would support their stay in the target country by way of attracting sponsorship through providing employment for the chosen players (this ensures thy have a guaranteed income) as well as bonuses for being picked and winning a game. We have utmost faith that once our players are afforded this opportunity, we will see a number of our local players playing at the very top of the game within a few years globally.
