Chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), Aisha Falode, has charged players and officials of Bayelsa Queens FC of Yenagoa to go all out to win the CAF Women’s Champions League coming up in Morocco later this year.
Falode, who gave the charge while congratulating the Bayelsa ladies for emerging champions of the Zone B qualifiers at Yamoussoukro, Cote d’ Ivoire, urged the players to move a step further to win the CAF Women’s Champions League.
Falode urged players and officials of the team not to relent in their efforts to move a step further to win the CAF Women’s Champions League title in Morocco, later in the year.
This she said will help to lift Nigeria’s profile as the true number one women football playing country in the African continent.
Rivers Angels represented Nigeria in the last edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League, which was hosted by Egypt.
It is expected that Nigerian club sides will toe the line of the national female team, the Super Falcons, who are the most successful National team in Africa.
The national women’s team, Super Falcons have won the TotalEnergies Africa Women’s Nations Cup (AWCON) a record 11 times, with Equatorial Guinea winning twice and South Africa running home with the last edition hosted by Morocco.
