Akwa United Wins First NPFL Title

A champion has been determined in Nigeria’s top division, the NPFL, and it is Akwa United following a decisive 5-2 home victory over Mountain of Fire and Miracles FC on Sunday. Charles Atshimene moved himself into a tie for the league’s top scorer with a hat trick as The Promise Keepers grew their league lead to nine points with their competition having only two more matches left to play. The title is Akwa’s first ever domestic league crown and will see them compete in the CAF Champions League next season for the first time in their history.
