NPFL Teams Up with EA SPORTS for Groundbreaking eNPFL Esports Tournament

The Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) has announced its official partnership with EA SPORTS FC™ Pro for the inaugural season of the eNPFL esports program.

Integral, Africa’s leading sports management and marketing company based in Lagos, Nigeria, will collaborate with the NPFL to organize the tournament.

This groundbreaking partnership marks the first time a West African league, specifically the NPFL, is joining the EA SPORTS FC™ Pro esports program for 2024.

The eNPFL tournament will provide an incredible opportunity for 24 players from EA SPORTS FC to represent the NPFL clubs in the competition.

The action-packed eNPFL tournament will span across four regions, with players competing on behalf of the 20 NPFL clubs. The qualifiers are scheduled to take place from March 9th to April 13th, 2024, in Ibadan, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, and Enugu.

The Grand Finale event will be held in Lagos on April 27th, 2024. The finalists will vie for a winner-takes-all grand prize of $15,000 (USD) and the chance to participate in the Play-Ins for the EA SPORTS FC Pro World Championship 2024.

Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, Chairman of the NPFL board, expressed enthusiasm about the upcoming esports program, stating, “We are excited to be a part of this landmark series of events, offering NPFL fans the opportunity to compete in the esports tournament representing NPFL clubs, thanks to our partnership with Integral!

With Integral’s innovative expertise, the eNPFL tournament is sure to be engaging and thrilling for gamers and fans alike. It is a matter of pride for the NPFL to become the first West African league to be a part of the EA SPORTS FC™ Pro esports program for 2024.”

Deolu Lamikanra, Managing Director of Integral, shared his anticipation for this year’s events, saying, “After the success of last season’s EA SPORTS licensed event, we are thrilled to once again bring an exciting gaming experience with EA SPORTS FC™ 24 to the forefront.

Working with the NPFL ensures that we provide a unique opportunity not only for gamers across Nigeria to participate but also for NPFL fans to follow the tournament live through our broadcast partners.

It is truly delightful to have Integral at the center of another one-of-a-kind gaming experience and to present the platform for the eNPFL champion to represent Nigeria on the global stage.”
