Kano Pillars FC History
Beginning in the year 1990, WRECA Football Club, Kano Golden Stars Football Club, and Bank of the North Football Club came together to form Kano Pillars, which went on to achieve remarkable success by winning the Nigerian Premier League in 2007–2008.
This information was provided by Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima, a former chairman of the Nigeria Football Association and a former sports commissioner of Kano. Players like Abiodun Baruwa, who later went on to play for clubs in Switzerland, Austria, Wales, and the United Kingdom, and Sani Kaita, who later went on to play for Sparta Rotterdam in the Netherlands, were also products of Kano Pillars. Notable players from Kano Pillars FC include Ahmed Musa, who played for Leicester City in the English Premier League after joining CSKA Moscow and Ahmed Garba, also known as “Yaro Yaro,” who later played for AB in Denmark.
Another prominent player is Ahmed Garba, also known as “Yaro Yaro,” who later played for AB in Denmark. First, it was incorporated as a limited liability company with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria, and then it was recognized as a professional football club with the Nigeria Football Association (NFA). During the 2016 league season, the Kano Pillars attracted an average home league attendance of 10,000 spectators.
Kano Pillars were handed a colossal punishment of 7,500,000.00 in June 2021, during the 2020/2021 NPFL season, for failing to respect the instructions of the LMC and NFF, which forbade fans from streaming live games inside the stadium. This violation occurred during the NPFL season. Fans interfered with a match between two teams in the top league, Akwa United and Kano Pillars. After it was all said and done the next day, the game ended with a score of 0-0.
