Plateau United FC History
JIB Strikers FC, the predecessor to Plateau United, was established in 1975. Plateau United defeated Iwuanyanwu Nationale in the final of the Nigeria Cup in 1999, winning 1-0 thanks to a goal scored by Donatus Iloka. This triumph was Plateau United’s first major trophy win.
They had previous failures in the championship game in 1993 and 1998. In the year 2000, they made their debut on the continental stage, however they were eliminated after their first match. They were promoted to the Nigeria Premier League for the 2010–11 season by virtue of their victory over Mighty Jets on the final day of the season, however the following year, on the final day of the season, they were demoted.
They played well enough at the end of the 2015 season to earn a promotion back to the top level. In 2013, their feeder squad was one of four teams who were suspended pending an investigation into their 79–0 victory over Akurba FC. The probe was related to the game that took place in 2012. In order for the four clubs to advance into the professional league, they have been accused of rigging matches.
Plateau Feeders, Akurba FC, Police Machine FC, and Bubayaro FC were each given a 10-year suspension on July 22, 2013, while the players and officials involved in each game were given a lifetime suspension. Plateau United, led by coach Kennedy Boboye, were the first team in the history of the Nigerian Professional Football League to win the championship.
