Rangers International are looking good on the NPFL table and off the pitch.

Rangers International, also known as the ‘Flying Antelopes’ are not only making a bold statement in the Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL, but also turning heads with their off-pitch style. 

Led by Fidelis Ilechukwu and Barrister Amobi Ezeaku, here is a quick look at how Rangers have achieved success on the pitch and left a stylish mark beyond it. 

Rangers Int’l: NPFL leaders

While Rangers have been a force to reckon with in the NPFL over the years, things have not moved smoothly for the Flying Antelopes since they last lifted the title in 2016.

However, things appear to have turned around following the return of Ezeaku, who was part of the Rangers side that won the title seven years ago.

Back as the new General Manager, the Lawyer has overseen incredible and noticeable changes at Rangers which include the appointment of Ilechukwu as manager.

After seven matches, the Flying Antelopes currently sit top of the table with 13 points, having won four, drawn one and lost two of their matches. 

While it is early hours in this marathon, Rangers will be looking to consolidate on what has been a strong start to the season from all indications.

Stylish off-Pitch Presence

Beyond their on-the-pitch achievements so far, the Antelopes are making another beautiful and commendable statement off the pitch.

From impeccably tailored suits to fashion-forward attire have ensured the players and staff are not just athletes but also fashion trendsetters.

Their sense of style has gained recognition, drawing fans and fashion enthusiasts, who now fondly refer to the Flying Antelopes as ‘Suits FC.’

Also, the transformation can also be seen through the prism of the club’s social media platforms, with improved quality football content that cuts across pre-, during and post-matches. 

As Rangers continue to impress on and off the field, the key question remains if the team can go all the way to end the seven-year wait for another NPFL title.

Whatever the case, for now, Rangers are making the right statements befitting of their standard and everyone is taking note.
