NPFL moves up in global league rankings

In terms of men’s football leagues in Africa, the Nigeria Premier Football League, or NPFL, has risen in the rankings.

The International Federation of Football History and Statistics, or IFFHS, carried out the rating.

Alfredo Poge established the IFFHS in Leipzig in 1974 as an organization dedicated to documenting the history and records of association football.

It evaluates the level of competition between leagues; according to the current rating, Egypt is ranked 20th in the world and leads Africa, with the Italian Serie A being the strongest league worldwide.

Gbenga Elegbeleye, the NPFL chairman, urged for continual progress toward the league’s repositioning and hailed the accomplishment as encouraging.

The Morocco Botola League is ranked next to Egypt in the most recent African classification, with Algeria, Tunisia, South Africa, and Tanzania following after. The only other West African leagues in the top 10 are Angola, Zambia, and Cote d’Ivoire, who are all behind Nigeria.

The English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, Brazilian Serie A, and German Bundesliga are the world’s top five leagues.
