The board of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) has moved the annual football fiesta, the Nigeria Women's Premier League (NWPL) Super Four to October.

The championship, which will make known the champions of the 2016/17 Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL), will be held from October 9-14 in Benin City, Edo state.

Officials and the participating teams -- Bayelsa Queens, Delta Queens, Nasarawa Amazons and title holders, Rivers Angels -- are expected to arrive in Benin City on Saturday, October 7 while the teams will use the time inbetween to train prior to the commencement of competitive matches on the 9th of October.

The championship was initially billed for September 11-16 in Benin City, Edo state.The NWFL board chairperson, Aisha Falode, said the postponement, though a difficult decision, becomes necessary because of the Fifa Under-20 World Cup qualifiers between Nigeria’s Falconets and their Tanzanian counterparts taking place in Nigeria on September 16 and Sunday, October 1 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

“The NWFL board is compelled to shift the date of the NWPL Super Four championship due to the Fifa U20 World Cup qualifying matches between Nigeria’s Falconets and Tanzania on Saturday, September 16 in Nigeria and October 1 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania respectively.“

The 2017 Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) will now run from October 9-14 in Benin City, Edo state.

“Teams and officials are expected to arrive on October 7, while the teams will use the time inbetween to train and unwind for competition proper commencing on Monday, October 9.“

We have always dreamed of the NWPL Super Four championship with excitement, character and quality that will not only showcase the best of women football to the outside world but also to give the needed dividend to our hosts and potential sponsors.

“We have a responsibility to end the already successful league season on high and the best way to achieve that mileage is to give everybody equal opportunity,” Falode said.

Nasarawa Amazons will kick off the championship against Bayelsa Queens on Monday, October 9 while Delta Queens take on the Cup holders, Rivers Angels, in the second match of matchday 1 clash.

The winners of the Super Four championship will go home with a prized sum of Three Million Naira (N3m) while the runners-up will pocket Two Million Naira (N2m) respectively. © supersport.com
