Rivers United have been crowned champions of the Nigeria Professional Football League despite losing 2-1 to Nasarawa United with three matches to spare.

Following a 2-1 defeat to Akwa United by closest challengers Plateau United, the Promise Keepers cruised home to rule Nigeria for the first time in their history.

With that, Stanley Eguma’s men have been guaranteed an automatic place in next season’s CAF Champions League.

In Aba, Enyimba’s chances of qualifying for Africa continue to fade as they could only record a 0-0 home draw against cross-city rivals Heartland.
