Gov. Abiodun Named Special Guest at NWFL Super Six
The executive governor of Ogun State, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, will be the special guest of honour at the upcoming 2020/21 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership Super Six billed to hold between April 19 and 25 at the Otunba Dipo Dina International Stadium in Ijebu-Ode.
The elite women’s football showpiece will confirm the league champions and confer ticket on the team to represent the country at the maiden CAF Women’s Champions League later in the year
However, the champions will first play in the regional WAFU B play-off while the eventual winner of the zonal play-off will go ahead to be the zone’s flag-bearers at the final tournament.
There is one additional slot given to the zone that produced the last edition of AFCON for women. Nigeria won it and should be given the slot though the modality for deciding who takes this slot is not known yet.
Hopefully, if Nigeria emerges as zonal champions and are given the AFCON slot as champions, the country may get additional slots at the final tournament.
The gladiators expected at the prime Super Six football fiesta include; Bayelsa Queens, Delta Queens, Rivers Angels, Edo Queens, FC Robo Queens and Sunshine Queens.
Incidentally, the top six clubs produced the topmost lethal strikers at the completion of the regular league in the persons of Gift Monday (FC Robo Queens), Charity Reuben (Bayelsa Queens), Elizabeth Zirike (Edo Queens), Dominance Odubanjo (Delta Queens), Maryann Ezenagu (Rivers Angels) and Seun Fakunle (Sunshine Queens).
Expectedly, there will be no dull moment for the football stakeholders who will come to the stands on matchdays to savour the football artistry as the teams go all out to undo each other for the coveted prize.
The neutral setting is quite tempting for the competitors to once again assert and confirm their supremacy over other challengers in the round leather game.
After 13 weeks of action packed league competition, Bayelsa Queens showed class by leading the 14-team top-flight with 31 points two ahead closest challengers and neighbours, Delta Queens.
Rivers Angels closed up on the third spot on 28 points, and Edo Queens and FC Robo Queens came strongly on 23 and 22 points respectively.
Sunshine Queens have to endure a harrowing wait for the last match-day clash against former champions, Nasarawa Amazons to confirm her claim to the last Super Six ticket.
