On the last day of the campaign, June 23, the Flying Antelopes beat relegated Gombe United 1-2 away from home to finish the campaign with 70 points in 38 games.

They won the league ahead of the second-placed Remo Stars who finished the campaign with 65 points in 38 games, and third-placed Enyimba of Aba who finished the campaign with 63 points in 38 games.

For winning the league, the Nigeria Premier Football League presented a grand prize of 150 million naira to them. Aside from that, they are expected to represent Nigeria in the 2024-2025 CAF Champions League.

While the 8 times NPFL champions are preparing for the forthcoming season, they got a mention from the FIFA president.

Gianni Infantino took to his Instagram story on Thursday, July 4, to post a picture of Enugu Rangers celebrating the triumph.

In the caption, the FIFA president wrote: “Congratulations Rangers International FC on being crowned 2023-24 champions of Nigeria.”
