Twitter Premier League (TPL) 7th edition is here again and promises to be more fun for it will be launching a full league format meaning there will be more football matches and more fun for all sport lovers who attend.
TPL is a social media driven football tournament that started May of 2014 and aimed at bringing back fun in sporting activities and assist in re-igniting the interest of youths in sports using football as a platform especially in indigenous sports.
TPL currently has six male teams and two female teams who slug it out at Campos Mini stadium, Lagos Island. The 7th edition is themed ”The Revolution”.
Stating the reason for the format change, TPL’s CEO, Seun Adebule said that “The full league format was chosen to create a platform for proper display of talent, instead of knockout matches straight away for teams that have been training so long for TPL. The TPL community wants to spread the fun throughout the year.”
Also speaking on the teams and future plans for the TPL, Adebule said ” we have six male teams for now ( Pacers, Raptors, Alphas, Teknon, Raineri and Guns) and two female teams (Tsarinas and Panthers). We plan on having more teams signed up before the next season. We’ve also begun work on a Nationwide TPL regional league with centers in Lagos, Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Enugu, and a super 4 tourney held at the end of the year to pick the team of the year”.
The Enugu version TPL042 was held earlier this month with four teams (Oringo fc, Fc Bisalla, Otigba fc and Conné Fc) representing the main areas of Enugu come out for a day of fun, football and food.
