The world football governing body, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has commended players, technical crew and the management of Plateau United over the club’s emergence as champions of the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football league.

Plateau United defeated last season’s Champions, Enugu rangers 2-nil to amass 66 points and scoop their first ever top flight title, on Sunday.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino in a letter addressed to President of Nigeria Football Federation, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick, says the triumph is the result of the determination of everyone involved at the club and congratulates the team for the great achievement.

“Plateau United are the 2017 champions of Nigeria. It gives me great pleasure to send my warmest congratulations to Plateau United for their first-ever championship title

“This title is the result of the determination of everyone involved and my congratulations go to the players, the coach, the administration, the entire technical and medical staff as well as the fans for this great achievement.

“On behalf of the entire football community, I would like to thank Plateau United and your association for helping to spread the positive message of football. I remain at your disposal and look forward to meeting you soon.”

Plateau United will for the first time in the club’s history fly Nigeria’s flag at the CAF champions league next season.
