The ancient Northern Nigerian city of Katsina will come alive on Sunday afternoon when darling team Katsina United host their first NPFL game in 15 years.

Sunday’s opponents inside the magnificient Muhammadu Dikko Stadium in Katsina will be another promoted club Gombe United.

‘The Changi Boys’ last played in the Nigeria top flight in 2002 when they were then owned by former NFF president Abdulmumini Aminu.

They are now financed by the Katsina State Government with Governor Aminu Bello Masari their No.1 supporter.

Katsina United are back in the big league after they won promotion from a section that included Mighty Jets, Kaduna United, Jigawa Golden Stars, Sokoto United, Kogi United, Shekarau Babes and FC Yarma Light.

They later went on to win the NNL Super 4 in Gombe and be crowned the overall champions of the country’s second-tier championship.

‘The Changi Boys’ have retained 22 players from their successful campaign last season.

These players include skipper Nasiru Sani, Timothy Danladi, Yinka Davis, Mustapha Shuaibu and Abdulkarim Ahmed.

New coach Bala Nikyu, assisted by Baldwin Bazauye, has now signed 15 new players including Bidemi Abdulwahab from FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Obinna Eleje of Warri Wolves and goalkeeper Dami Paul from Nasarawa United.

Abdulwahab and Eleje are expected to lead the attack against a Gombe United team now under the tutelage of former Nigeria U20 coach Manu Garba.

Manu will parade a more experienced team with the likes of former Kano Pillars stars Tijani Yusuf, Manir Ubale and Bala Mohammed very much part of his plans.

Katsina United petite winger Mustapha Shuaibu said his team will be victorious on Sunday.

“We will get the result against Gombe United. I believe in this team,” he predicted.

It will be a battle of two national team coaches as two promoted teams aim to get off to a winning start in the

new NPFL season, which promises a lot.

Kick -off is 4pm.
