The management of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), has announced the postponement by one week, the kickoff of the Nigeria Women Premier League 2018/2019 season.
According to the Chief Operating Officer, Alhaji Ayo Abdulrahman, the postponement was necessary following the failure of five of the Premier League clubs to register for the season.
The clubs that are yet to register include: defending champions Bayelsa Queens of Yenagoa, Dream Stars of Lagos, The Invincible Angels of Gboko, Heartland Queens of Owerri and Abia Angels.
The NWFL Chief Operating Officer has declared that, the erring clubs have been given until Friday, July 19, 2019 to complete their registration. “Those who fail to meet the fresh deadline of July 19, 2019 will be termed ineligible and the NWFL Secretariat will be forced to hold a fresh draw and prepare new League fixtures only for those eligible.”
