Players and officials of Remo Starts of Ikenne have been rewarded for their "outstanding performances" in the outgone season, in which they campaigned in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) and made their debut in the CAF Confederation Cup.

President of the club, Hon.

In fact, the Sky Blues from Ikenne, Remo did not lose to both Enyimba (1-1) and former champions Rivers United (2-2) and only placed second on inferior goals difference, after all three sides were tied on 9 points on the final day.

By finishing in second spot, Remo Stars clinched one of Nigeria's two CAF Champions League tickets and this is an upgrade from the preceding season, when they finished third position and had to play in the CAF Confederation Cup.
