Chairperson of the Nigerian Women Football League, Aisha Falode, has stated that, the board is committed to roll with the ten serious clubs that had complied with their registration requirements ahead the new season.
Speaking to newsmen, Falode stated that, the NWFL is not looking for a non compliance crowd but the few who are serious to do what they (the board) as instructed.
“The level of compliance we are very happy as we speak now, ten clubs have complied which we are very happy with that.”
“If it’s ten that are ready to do women football, we will run with the ten, it’s not about the number anymore but it’s about the quality, it is about what you give back.”
“Football is not charity, if you can’t fund it – you have no business being on it so if it’s the ten that are ready in fact, the deadline has passed but some are pleading, give us three more days and we don’t want to be hard on them.
“We are going to allow them but if we don’t get the compliance needed we will run with the ten; do another draw with the ten that have complied and we will start the league according to the stipulated date.” she said.
