The chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League, NWFL, Aisha Falode has rolled out conditions that women clubs must meet in order to participate in the forthcoming season, www.totorinews.com reports.
According to the football administrator, the league body is not happy with the way some clubs have treated the players under their care and these clubs stand the risk of facing the hammer, if they fail to obey the guidelines the leadership of the league has given before the league commence.
She insisted that NWFL clubs will have to undergone standard medical screening to ascertain the fitness of their players ahead of the new season, have proper COVID-19 protocols and ensure that the welfare of their players are paramount.
“We have been talking to the clubs about the insurance for the players, standard medical fitness test of these players, proper medical certificate of fitness of the players to be presented,” Falode told the media in Abuja on Tuesday.
“We also have been talking to the clubs about meeting all the obligations when it concerns the welfare and salaries of the players,” she added.
To buttress the importance of these guidelines, she informed that any club that fail to live up to expectations of the league body stand the risk of not participating in the league.
“If any club miss out in any of these instructions and directives we have given for the growth and development of the league and for us to see that young girls are not compromised in any way, the club runs a risk of not being part of the league.
“We are not comfortable with the news we are getting of how some clubs have treated these young girls.
“We want to make sure that whatever that is in the best interest of these girls is whatever we are going to stand with and embolden. That is the communication we have been sending to these clubs in the last couple of weeks,” she concluded.
