The indigenes of the state and football connoisseurs, who have been thronging the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium to witness the best of women soccer in the last one week, are gearing up for the final match of the competition featuring Nasarawa Amazons and Delta Stars.

Prior to the kick off of the competition, most followers of the Nigerian women game picked Rivers Angels and Bayelsa Queens as the teams to beat owing to their pedigree in the game. But they have been pleasantly surprised bt the superlative performances of Delta Queens and the Amazons from Nasarawa, who have defied all odds to make the final. Now, the dice is cast. It is time for the best team in the NWPL to emerge and as usual, the fans are not agreed on the likely winner of the match.

But one thing is common in the analysis by the pundits:  Anybody, who comes to the stadium for the final game today will be treated to a world class match in a convivial atmosphere set by the Edo State government.

Nasarawa have seven points, while Delta have five points to make the final, while Bayelsa and Rivers Angels were left to fight for the third place match, which held yesterday.

According to NWFL Chairperson, Aisha Falode, Nasarawa State Deputy Governor, Silas Agara, Asisat Oshoala, who is a product of Robo FC, Edo State government officials and members of the executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will grace the occasion.

“We have rolled out the drums to ensure that all football fans at the stadium get the best of Edo State hospitality.
