KickOffNigeria Shuts Down

share on:

Popular football site, KickOffNigeria is shutting down.

The last post on the site’s website reads,

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the immediate closure of the web and mobile sites, as well as all it’s social media pages.

KON relaunched almost two years ago after many years in the wilderness, and while the traffic uptake was pleasing, the lack of sustainable advertising and sponsorship revenue has meant that it no longer makes business sense to keep the platforms operational.

We would like to thank all our readers for the loyalty and support they have shown KickOffNigeria; it has been a pleasure reporting to such dedicated and knowledgeable fans.

We remind you that you can still get all the latest news from the Super Eagles camp and on our players abroad by following Colin Udoh on Twitter@ColinUdoh or checking out his blog at, or following Uche George Egbe at @kpaka2score or

Best wishes
The KickOffNigeria team”
