Bayelsa United FC of Yenagoa are owned and financed by the Bayelsa State government. The club were founded in 2000 and enjoyed great success in 2009 when they got to the semi-finals the CAF Confederations Cup. They also won their first and only Premier League title in the same year (2008/09). The club shockingly fell into financial crises in the 2009/10 season and got relegated. However, they returned to the Premier League after finishing second behind Nembe City in the NNL Super Four tournament in 2012.
