Abuja – The Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) on Wednesday said it has removed three clubs from the Premier and Professional Leagues for breach of the rules and regulations governing the competitions.
Ayo Abdulrahaman, Executive Secretary of the NWFL, said in Abuja that the Ad hoc Committee governing the NWFL has already communicated this decision to the affected clubs.
He said a letter intimating the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) of the decision had also been sent to the NFF General Secretary.
The NWFL Executive Secretary listed the clubs as Tokas Queens, Capital City Doves and State House Queens.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while Tokas Queens and Capital City Doves campaigned in the Premier League, State House Queens played in the Professional League.
“I have the directive of the league’s Ad-hoc Committee Chairman to inform the Federation of some league clubs which have lost their positions due to their failure to honour three matches in the current season.
“This loss of position is supported by Article 4.2 paragraphs 1 and 5 of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) rules, and they are therefore out of the league,” Abdulrahaman said in the letter.
