Two Nigerian women clubs, Air Warriors and MFM Queens of Lagos have gained automatic tickets to the 2019 FIBA Africa Club championship to be played in December. They will no longer participate in the FIBA Zone Three Women Club Championship elimination series, FIBA Africa Zone Three has disclosed.

According to a memo from the FIBA Africa Zone Three office headed by Col Sam Ahmedu (rtd), the 2019 Zenith Bank Women Basketball League winners, Air Warriors of Abuja and MFM Queens alongside Energie Club of Cotonou have qualified for the final round.

Air Warriors, who made their debut in the women’s league were crowned the 2019 Zenith Bank Women Basketball League Champions after a hard-earned 55-53 points victory against MFM Queens in the final.

The Abuja based side became the first women’s club to win the league in its first year, while also setting an enviable record of being the first Savannah Conference side to win the league, which had been largely dominated by First Bank of Lagos with nine titles. MFM, on their part, improved on their 2018 season when they finished fourth under coach Aderemi Adewunmi to win their first ever silver medal.

FIBA Africa will decide the final host of the competition between Angola and Madagascar, who have both indicated interest to host the apex women’s club championship in Africa. It means that no Nigerian club side (men and women) will be participating in the FIBA Africa zonal elimination series, which starts today in Cotonou, Benin Republic. (The Guardian)
