The board of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), has insisted on staging the NWFL Premiership Super Six to determine the league champions and the country’s two representatives for the Inaugural Total CAF Women’s Champions League, as agreed by the NWFL and the NWFL Premiership Club Owners on April 5, 2021, in a virtual meeting attended by all the clubs’ representatives.
The Chairperson of the NWFL, Aisha Falode, said Sunday morning that, some of the Premiership Club Owners that held another meeting on Saturday, April 10, 2021, on a concluded matter, cannot arm-twist the NWFL to accept the decisions taken in another meeting, which contained some decisions which in all ramifications are capable of putting the women’s league into disrepute.
Falode opined that “April 5 decision for a Super Six was a patriotic one by the clubs after a vote of 10 to 1 and three undecided. This would see the league end on April 25, and the country’s two representatives presented well on time for the West African Football Union (WAFU) Qualifiers for the CAF Women Champions League, in May.
“Some of the decisions in the communique sent out yesterday by those who sent it were not progressive. Asking that a past winner of the league be picked as Nigeria’s representative to the CAF Women’s Champions League, will be unfair on the current league leaders after 13 weeks of the league. It’s only logical and fair to engage the top six clubs in a Super Six Challenge to get the two of Nigeria’s representatives.

“We know those pushing some of the clubs to make frivolous requests, but we won’t allow them to distract us, as we insist on the NWFL Super Six, there is no going back,” Falode concluded.
The NWFL Super Six Challenge will take place from April 19 to 25 at Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, with Bayelsa Queens, Delta Queens, Rivers Angels, Edo Queens, FC Robo Queens, and Sunshine Queens set to contest for the two continental tickets up for grabs in the 2021 Total CAF Women’s Champions League.
