The Chairperson of the NWFL, Aisha Falode, said at the end of Monday’s Virtual meeting to review the activities of the 2020/2021 NWFL Premiership season for the second stanza, that; “While the full season will end after the last game on Wednesday, 7th July 2021, the qualifiers for the much anticipated CAF Champions League holds in May.
“If the NWFL Premiership season should continue until July 7, Nigerian clubs will be ruled out of the West African Football Union (WAFU) qualifiers for the CAF Women Champions League which has been slated to hold in May. And it will be counterproductive if we continue the league and miss out of the CAF Women Champions League which Nigerian clubs are working very hard to win the inaugural edition.
“So, the NWFL board agreed with all the NWFL Premiership clubs to allow the top six clubs at the end of the First Round on April 7, to play for the title in a Super Six championship, whose date and venue will be communicated to the qualified clubs. While the bottom eight clubs will engage in a play off to determine the two teams that will be relegated.”
Falode, noted that to reach these decisions, the NWFL board got the consent of the 14 clubs in the NWFL Premiership. She expressed her delight on the cooperation and understanding showed by the clubs.
