2022 Season of the Nigeria Beach Soccer League set to kick off in Kwara !

The Nigeria Beach Soccer Association (NBSA) has scheduled the February 23, 2022 kick-off date and fixtures for the 2022 Nigeria Beach Soccer League (NBSL) season.

Taye Olajide, the NBSA’s Board Secretary, who confirmed this on Tuesday, said the General Assembly had agreed on the proposed kick-off date at a meeting held with stakeholders, which got the approval of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Olajide revealed that the General Assembly during its 2021 AGA retained the format of four rounds across four different centres, including the epic Super Final event to be staged in Kaduna City for the second time.

According to the NBSA scribe, the first round of the league will be staged in Ilorin, Kwara State, beginning on February 23, and ending with matchday three fixtures on February 26, 2022.

The second round comes up in Lagos, from March 16 to 19, 2022, while Kebbi State will host the third round from May 4 to 7 before the finals in Kaduna at the newly built Beach Soccer Stadium built by Kaduna State Government will hold from June 1 to 4, 2022.

The NBSA secretariat announced that ten clubs have enrolled to participate in the upcoming second edition of the NSBL season – two more than the eight (8) teams involved in the inaugural edition held in 2021.

The registered clubs are the defending champions Kebbi BSC, Kwara State BSC, Kada BSC, and Lagos trio of Badagry BS Warriors, Igbogbo Kingdom BSC and Smart City BSC.

New entrants are Nmanko BSC of Pategi, Galaxy Sports Academy of Benue, Niger State BSC and the old horse Kogi Confluence BSC.

Kebbi Beach Soccer Club won the maiden edition of the Nigerian Beach Soccer League title amidst an entertaining atmosphere after pipping Kada Beach Soccer Club in a 4-3 extra-time win at the Kaduna Beach Soccer Stadium in July 2021.

All Matches will be streamed live at all league centres.
