Two clubs with the highest vote tallies in each zone will tackle each other at the zonal play-offs scheduled to hold at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, from June 1 to 3.

There are 16 NPFL clubs among the nominated teams while the rest are drawn from other tiers.

Following the opening of the voting portal, clubs like Rivers United, Nasarawa United and Lobi Stars have begun to appeal to their fans for votes that will qualify them to play in the money-spinning tournament.
