It was gathered that the winners will take home N5 million, while the runners-up and third-placed teams will go away with M3 million and N2 million, respectively.
As part of the sponsorship deal, the new sponsor will also provide uniforms for all six teams competing in the mini-tournament, which include the Edo Queens, Nasarawa Amazons, Naija Ratels, Bayelsa Queens, Rivers Angels, and Delta Queens.
Speaking after signing the deal with NWFL chairperson Aisha Falode, TULCAN Energy Resources’ representative, Dolapo Akinwale, said, “Our strategy and intention is to grow the sport and that’s the reason we are sponsoring the NWFL Premiership Super 6. We are also planning to sustain this.”
The tournament will produce the winners of the 2021–202 NWFL season and go on to represent the country in continental club competitions.
Meanwhile, Falode has called for more investments in women’s football in Nigeria.
“To run football in Nigeria is all about sacrifice. We’ve succeeded in running the league before without sponsors but now, we have a big brand for our premium football”
