Concise News understands that the winners of the fixtures will play in the final of the NWPL Super Four while the losers take on each other in the third-place match (all on Sunday, November 3, 2019).

According to the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Chairperson Aisha Falode, the winner of the competition will get a N3 million cash prize and an official trip to Spain on the invitation of the La Liga Women’s League.

For the runners-up, they will get N2 million, while the third-place team will smile home with a N1 million cash prize.

“This is the much we have done to further develop the Nigerian league, as we the board members of the NWFL know quite well that, there is no vibrant national team, without a standard and well-developed league football in the country,” she said.

According to her, “We have not done badly in a little over two years since we took office. “We have a league that plays the Super Four and the Champion’s Shield. All we need now for our viable league is a worthy sponsorship.

“We appeal to the clubs to appreciate the good things done by the board and constructively criticise. We want the best for the league.

“The closing gap being experienced from other African countries at the national team level, means, we need to work hard to regain our pride of place at the top of African football.”
