NWFL Commends Amazons, Edo Queens On Club Licensing
The leadership of the Nigeria Women Football League, NWFL, has applauded the management of former champions, Nazarawa Amazons and Edo Queens Football Club, for beating the deadline for club licensing registration and doing all due diligence ahead of the 2020/21 league season which has been scheduled to kick off on December 9, 2020 across the federation.
NWFL Chairperson, Aisha Falode, commended the leadership of the two clubs whose actions demonstrated their readiness to take the new season by storm.
“These are two top clubs that just rebuilt the leadership of their club managements to reflect the seriousness of the two state governments in the business of women football.
“Nazarawa and the Edo State government are no doubt in the forefront of women’s football club management in Nigeria. What they just did was sending messages out to other states and privately-owned clubs in the NWFL Premiership, that they are out for a big deal this time around, especially as all the clubs are top contenders for the inaugural CAF Women Champions League in 2021.
“We in the NWFL salute the two states government for living up to expectations in the Club Licencing / Registration of the clubs.”
Falode added that, “what this tells us is that, the newly adopted straight league would be very interesting as other clubs are putting in extra efforts to make sure they beat the deadline before the expiration.”
