Nigeria Women Football League resumes weekend


The NWFL has asked the Adamawa State Football Federation to guarantee the safety of all players and officials in the games that will hold in the state.

The Nigeria Women Football League, NWFL, will resume on Saturday after a two-week break, the League secretary, Isaac Ajisafe, has stated.

The League had embarked on its mid-season break earlier than scheduled to allow states conclude their respective Federation Cup finals.

As the League gets set for its second phase, the NWFL Board enjoined all clubs to pay all outstanding fines, levies/administrative fees as well as all mandatory fees before the commencement of the second stanza of the league season to avoid sanctions.

Clubs were also advised to honour their fixtures obligation accordingly as failure to honour matches will incur the full wrath of the law.

Meanwhile, the NWFL board has written to the Adamawa State Football Federation seeking a written assurance for security of the matches billed to hold in the state.

Part of the letter sent to the Adamawa Football Federation read thus: “Further to this, we wish to draw your attention to the last nationwide broadcast of President Goodluck Jonathan declaring State of Emergency in three states including Adamawa”.

“It is in view of the above declaration that we write to request you to kindly forward to us as a matter of urgency a written confirmation that adequate security will be provided for players and officials of both the home and away teams before, during and after the NWFL matches in Adamawa State”.

Mr. Ajisafe said unless a written assurance is gotten, the NWPL will be left with no other option than to move games billed for Adamawa to other venues.
