Ikorodu City and Inter Lagos will join Madiba FC and Beyond Limits, who previously secured their spots from Conference A. This sets the stage for an exciting Super Eight playoff battle in Enugu.

While the playoffs are currently scheduled for later this month, there’s a chance the dates might shift. This is due to the ongoing involvement of some NNL clubs in the President’s Federation Cup.

The Lagos clubs’ dominance in the NNL is a thrilling development for local football. Both Ikorodu City and Inter Lagos will be aiming to make a lasting impression in the Super Eight playoffs and potentially earn promotion to the top tier of Nigerian football.
