Rangers International Football Club, commonly known as Enugu Rangers, is a Nigerian professional association football team.

History[edit]

They are based in Enugu and play their home games at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium nicknamed "THE CATHEDRAL". In 2008–09, they played some games in nearby Abakaliki and Nnewi as their stadium was renovated for the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup. Before the season started, Enugu State governor Sullivan Chime paid the backlog of sign-on fees dating to three years ago and all other debts owed the players. In November 2008, Rangers became the first Nigerian clubside to be a public company and sell ownership stock [2]. However the deal fell through, and the club began the 2009 season in debt.[1]
