The Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) head of management committee, Aisha Falode, has said she intends to see the Nigerian women’s league evolve into a global league brand capable of competing favourably with top women’s leagues across the world.

Falode said this at the NWFL-LaLiga Coaches Online Training Masterclass aimed at taking coaches in the various women’s clubs in Nigeria to greater heights.

The training programme partnership with Spain’s LaLiga is a further step in the development of the women’s game with the LaLiga women’s league, one of the activation points of an MoU signed in 2018 between the NWFL and LaLiga.

Falode in her opening speech at the online training programme expressed her gratitude to LaLiga, most especially to Pedro Malabia, head of La Liga Women Football and the entire LaLiga team for their help and commitment in making the training programme a reality.

“The NWFL began in 1990 and its 30 years in 2020. One of the best ways to celebrate is to improve the quality of play in our clubs.

“That is to play beautiful, modern and progressive brands of football that will help develop quality of the league and attract more fans to the clubs.

“We have a mandate at the NWFL, to evolve into a global league brand that can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with some of Europe’s best.

“It requires a lot of work and you coaches are a very big part of making that vision a reality,” said Falode.

The NWFL-LaLiga Coaches Online Training Masterclass concluded on Wednesday (June 24).
