The Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) is delighted to announce the upcoming Annual General Assembly (AGA) set to take place on October 5th, 2023.

This significant event will be hosted at the BON Hotel, Ikeja Residence, 51 Sobo Arobiodu Street, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos.

Going into the Annual General Assembly, NWFL’s core strategy is firmly rooted in robust stakeholder engagement. The focus is on expanding the women’s football ecosystem, a holistic approach that encompasses state football associations, clubs, players, ex-players, NWFL ambassadors, coaches, fans, agents, corporate Nigeria, commercial partners, policymakers, and more.

This year’s AGA revolves around the theme of “Women’s Football Rising©.” Coincidentally, it also marks the unveiling of a new platform, Women’s Football Rising©, which embodies NWFL’s vision, grassroots women’s football commitment, and future aspirations.

Women’s Football Rising© serves as a monumental platform championing the multifaceted essence of women’s football. It’s a rallying point for empowerment, unity, and transformation of women’s football in Nigeria.

Under this platform, NWFL will launch exciting initiatives including the He4She© Campaign, Sisterhood© Campaign, and Football and The Girl Child© Initiative. These efforts will be powered by extensive stakeholder engagement, which lies at the heart of NWFL’s mission. The engagements will be primarily events-driven, and intended to expand the women’s football ecosystem.

As stated by Ms. Nkechi Obi, Chairman of NWFL, “Empowering strong clubs is the cornerstone of NWFL’s mission, as they are the driving force behind women’s football development, fostering talent, promoting inclusivity, and shaping the future of the game.”
Ms. Obi emphasized, “Investing in women’s football isn’t just a commitment; it’s a catalyst for transforming the entire landscape of the sport, driving inclusivity, equality, and unlocking the true potential of women football in Nigeria.”

Ms. Modupe Shabi, the COO of the league, noted that “NWFL stands as the cornerstone of opportunity for talented female players in Nigeria, offering a dedicated platform for them to flourish and chase their footballing dreams with passion and purpose.”
NWFL is strategically leveraging FIFA’s women’s football development workplan to increase female participation in football, enhance clubs’ commercial value, optimize existing competitions, and build a culture of good footballer conduct and club governance.

The league’s ultimate goal is to deliver a strong women’s football league that is competitive and well governed, ensuring that women’s football in Nigeria continues to rise to new heights.

NNL solicits for funds from cooperate organisation

The Nigeria National League, NNL, has appealed to cooperate organisations for funds to assist in the effective running of the second tier league.

NNL chairman, George Aluo noted that the unavailability of funds has hindered the progress of his administration.

“I must continue to express my appreciation to Alhaji Gusau for finding me worthy to serve as NNL chairman and a board member of the NFF,” he stated.

“My appeal is that corporate organizations should come to our aid and do what GTI is doing for the NPFL.

“We’re not saying they should give us money to put in our pockets. Let them take care of referees indemnity and once this is done, the referees will not be intimidated but rather be at their best and it will now be possible for teams to be winning more on the road as is presently being witnessed in the NPFL.”
