“I can confirm to you that we have five clubs in the NPFL and another five playing in the Nigeria National League coming for the preseason,” Bawala said.

“The four continental teams and Shooting Stars are the five in the NPFL while there are five others from the NNL.

“Wednesday is the arrival for all the clubs and we are going to be conducting the draws same day so as to start the following day.”
