Plateau United Football Club of Jos (usually known as Plateau United) are a Nigerian football (soccer) club. Before 1991, they were known as the JIB Strikers FC.[1]

The name "Plateau United" was the former name of their cross-town rivals Mighty Jets.[2] They were promoted to the Nigeria Premier League for the 2010–11 season by winning on the last day against Mighty Jets, but were relegated back the next year on the last day. They were promoted back to the top league on the last day of the 2015 season.[3]

In 2013, their feeder team were one of four clubs suspended, pending an investigation into their 79–0 victory over Akurba FC.[4] The four clubs were accused of match-fixing in order to advance into the professional league. On 22 July 2013, Plateau Feeders, Akurba FC, Police Machine FC and Bubayaro FC were each banned for 10 years, with the players and officials in each game banned for life.
