Ahead of Wednesday’s draws, the Nigeria National League has released the groupings for the 2022-23 NNL season, which is scheduled to kick off on March 3.
The 43-team league, comprising 19 teams from the Northern Conference and 24 clubs from the Southern Conference, is split into eight sub-regional groups.
Each Conference has been divided into four groups and clubs will play each opposing team in their sub-regional group twice, home and away.
The Northern Conference is divided into four groups (A1, A2, A3 and A4), while the 24 Southern Conference is broken into B1, B2, B3 and B4.
Winners of the eight groups will likely play in a Super 8 playoff tournament, which will be held at a neutral stadium.
The top four teams at the playoffs will gain promotion to the Nigeria Professional Football League.
