A jury of 5 experts drawn from the Department of Humankinetics and Health Education and the National institute of sports validated the instrument, while the reliability was established using the Cronbach’s Coefficient Alpha method and a reliability coefficient of 0.91 was obtained. Mean and standard deviation were used in answering the research questions while the one way analysis of variance ANOVA was used for testing the hypothesis at 0.05 level of significant. The result revealed that sports administrators, coaches and players mean perception was above criterion mean of 2.50. It implies that policies influence the Nigeria premierleague.
