It reign for two seasons now and everyone can see that Kano Pillars is solid. Despite the raging stampedes of the people’s elephant, Enyimba of Aba last season, the northern pillars remain unshakeable champions of Glo Premier League for the second year running.

Now a great windfall is come with the reign and it’s expected that Kano Pillars will get even stronger next season. Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwason rewarded the NPFL champions with 28 brand new Toyota Corolla cars valued at about N4million for 25 regular players and three officials of Kano Pillars for retaining the league title.
Ten other players and the backroom staff were given N500, 000 and N700, 000 each respectively for their efforts.


Kano Pillars is one team that has enjoyed support from the state government and people of Kano. Where as most stadium in Nigeria are empty during NPFL games, Sani Abacha Stadium continue to bobble with spectators. You may well say that the city of Kano is vulnerable to Boko Haram attack, yet the 18, 000 capacity stadium always get filled up each time Kano Pillars play their home game.



 Indeed, sport marketers couldn’t have overlooked such overwhelming support. The Italian sport wear company, Kappa, has moved to sign US$1 million deal with the club, being facilitate by GSport Consult in Dubai.  Kano Pillars will be putting on Kappa brand of Jersey for the next 3 years.







Kano Pillars shirt sponsors, BUA, is also making move to extend its partnership deal with the club for the next 5 years.  With such deal, BUA is sure to enjoy a lot of goodwill from Kano community and massive media exposure to football fans, not only in Nigeria but across the African continent.


Kano Pillars will be playing in CAF Champions league again, but this time, Governor Kwankwason plan to extend the club’s reign to African frontiers.



The club management will ever be grateful to the former coach, Baba Gana, who may have taken Kano Pillars so far, but the governor has decided to strengthen the team by hiring three Italian tacticians to take the team to the next level. All salaries and expenses of the coaches will be paid by GSport.

Kano Pillars is also signing some of the best legs in Nigerian football today – five players from the troubled Heartland, one from Sunshine and one from 3SC, which recently went on relegation to the National League. Well, you can’t blame the players since milk and honey has started to flow in Kano Pillars.
