Look what a wonderful team we are!
Leventis United was a football team based in Ibadan, Nigeria. It was founded in 1982 as an amalgam of clubs from Oyo State, backed by the Royal Nigeria Carpet company; a subsidiary of Greek corporation Leventis.
Leventis United won the third division in 1984, the same year they won the FA Cup. The next year, Leventis was promoted to the First Division after winning the second division with an undefeated record, the first such feat in Nigerian football. With John Mastoroudes as general manager, the team quickly built itself into one of the best financed sides in the country. However, the club suffered with the recession and coups of the late 1980s. Due to the lack of financial backing from the Leventis Company, the team disbanded after the 1987 league season. After twenty years, there is a grassroots effort underway to resurrect the team.
