Celebrating the return of football with our jersey launch

Football is back! The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has announced that the restriction on contact sports (including football) has been lifted. This is after about seven months of inactivity due to the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, this is limited to the sport itself – which means that fans are still restricted from match venues.

However, we’ve got you covered with regular updates and information on events and developments.

First off, we will be launching our jerseys for the new season on Monday, 19th October 2020. Please stay glued to our social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and information on how you could win a FREE customized club jersey.


Dawn of a new football club as Abuja Metro FC holds successful tryouts

There were over 200 players in attendance at the Abuja Metro FC tryouts held on Saturday, 12 January 2019. The tryouts were held for the purpose of selecting players to compete for places in the first team squad of the new football club. Players from different parts of the country converged on the FIFA Goal Project Football Pitch, in the Abuja National Stadium Complex for the tryouts, which were keenly contested and saw fine display of football skills and technical ability.

Over 50 players were selected from the screening exercise and will begin training with the team, from which the first team squad will eventually be picked. The club is preparing to compete in the Nationwide League next season and is set to treat Abuja football fans to an exciting football package.

Abuja Metro FC is a brand new, supporter-owned football club with a vision to become a model professional football club and compete at the highest level of association football. The club is open to new members in Abuja and beyond, through its supporter-ownership scheme, which gives registered members a shareholding in the club.

Abuja gets new community-owned football club

In November 2018, it was announced that plans were underway to establish a community-owned football club to be known as Abuja Metro Football Club. The idea was borne out of the belief that the federal capital territory of Nigeria should have a modern football club that the entire metropolis could be proud of, given the rich football heritage of Nigeria as a whole.

With the vision to develop a model professional football club to compete at the highest level of association football, the seven founding members announced details on how football fans could become co-owners of the Abuja Metro FC. After a series of meetings, it was agreed that the club would be registered as a cooperative society under the Cooperative Societies Act of Nigeria and on 12 December 2018 the bye-laws were adopted.

From December 2018, three categories of shares (Green, Gold and Platinum) became available at the cost of N2,000, N5,000 and N10,000 per month. Shareholders of the club form part of the decision-making process and are entitled to vote and be voted for into the Management Board of the club.
