Crown FC is a Nigerian football club from Ogbomosho, Oyo State playing in the Nigeria Premier League. They play at the Ogbomosho Township Stadium, with a capacity of 5,000. For the 2010-11 season they will play some games at the Ilaro Stadium in nearby Ogun State.


They were founded in 1994 by Rev. Prof. Yusuf Ameh Obaje, a college professor, pastor and former chaplain to Olusegun Obasanjo. Their main rivals are Oyo neighbours Shooting Stars F.C. of Ibadan. Games between the two became fierce during 3SC's relegation to the Nigeria National League in 2006. In thirteen total meetings, 3SC holds an 9-2-2 advantage. Crown achieved promotion to the Premier League for the first time after finishing on top of the 2010 Division 1B.
