Chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Ms. Aisha Falode says the league board is set to kick off the 2020/2021 Premiership season with ten serious clubs.
This is coming after the deadline for Club licencing elapsed on Monday, November 23, 2020.
Madam Aisha Falode insisted that only licenced clubs will play in the league.
“Ten clubs have completed their registration. If only ten clubs can play the league, we will have to go on with the league. Football is not charity. All the prerequisites must be met.
NWFL on Monday rolled out the list of clubs that have completed their registration as well as those whose registration is ongoing with a warning that three defaulting clubs risk relegation to the NWFL Championship if they fail to complete the process.
The effect of this is fewer matches and the possibility of new draws ahead of December 9, 2020, the kick-off date of the season.
“The deadline for registration has elapsed. Some clubs are pleading, but if they don’t meet up with the standard it means we will have to go ahead with the league with the ten serious clubs. Another draws might have to be done before the kick-off date of next season.” Falode concluded.
FC Robo Queens, Nasarawa Amazons, Edo Queens, Osun Babes, Bayelsa Queens, Royal Queens, Abia Angels, and Rivers Angels according to a release from NWFL Secretariat on Monday have completed registration ahead of next season.
Delta Queens, Pelican Stars, Adamawa Queens, Confluence Queens, and Ibom Angels’ registrations are in progress, while Sunshine Queens, Heartland Queens, and DreamStars FC risk relegation to NWFL Championship by virtue of their registration cum Club licencing process.
