Quoting her words the NFF Board member said “discussions have reached the final stage with KC Gaming Network, the owners Bet9ja to come into the League as our title sponsors for the Nigeria Women Premier League.

“We have been discussing with them, and there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. We are now set to make it public and the memoranda of understanding would soon be signed.

“This is a good thing for our Women Football League, and whatever that accrues from the deal will go a long way to reduce the burden of our clubs.

“They have been to virtually all the Olympics games minus the last one London which they missed, they have dominated the Africa scene till date winning the Africa Women Champions seven times, and the age grade teams are not doing badly, with the U-20 girls playing the FIFA World cup finals twice.

“This is no mean achievements, and we felt that the best thing we can do as an organization is to support the League that has been producing these players that have been positively projecting the image of this country.

“This is our little ways of giving back to the society and also ensuring that the girls are further empowered through the game of football”.
