The Nigeria University Games Association (NUGA) in conjunction with Pace Sports Entertainment Limited has concluded arrangements to stage a football competition for universities registered with NUGA. Both parties recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to kick-start the competition tagged Higher Institution Football League (HIFL)  

The event is billed to take place between July 28 and October 27, 2018 in 8 zones and for the period of 14 weeks, 30 matches will be played. Already, the institutions have been divided into the 2 groups- the Atlantic (South) and Savannah (North) groups- for logistics reasons.

According to Head Strategy at Pace Sports Entertainment and marketing, Olamide Adeyemo, the competition will be on home and away basis while the final 4 matches will take place at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

“We have been on this project for over 1 year and so we have held many meetings to look at all areas to make the event a huge success. We are committed to engage the students and use this platform to help in the development of sports facilities across the institutions in the country,” Adeyemo said.

NUGA President, Stephen Hamafyelto, expressed delight on the forthcoming competition which has the endorsement of the Nigeria Football Federation. “We will always ensure the provision of sporting facilities as well as supervise and encourage the organization of sporting activities in Nigeria. We   are ready to inspire students to be the next generation of leaders through excellence in sports and academics,” the NUGA boss revealed.
