The Nigeria Women football league set to resume back to action after being frozen for weeks due to coronavirus.
The season has been suspended for proper Covid-19 test on players and team officials.
The latest test results confirms that some players were tested positive for the virus.
The president of the women football confirmed that, all the clubs’ players and officials have been tested and results have been submitted to the NWFL Secretariat after thorough verification.
Falode disclosed that; “Though there are a number of positive tests from the results, the affected clubs have been instructed to keep these players out of the team’s camp and replace them with other players who tested negative.
“The clubs are supposed to monitor these positive cases and ensure proper treatment and isolation until they come out with a clean bill of health.
“After the treatment regime, a fresh test must be conducted and results submitted showing the negative status of the affected players before they can return to the league.”
The NWFL chairperson who is also a board member of the Nigeria Football Federation, noted that, the dates on the match fixtures have been adjusted and copies sent to all the clubs for their matches.

We cannot afford to wait any longer. The league will resume on Wednesday February 10, 2021 going into Week 5 out of 26 weeks to be played with a total of 182 matches.”
