He listed the six participating teams as the host state team, Edo Queens, defending champion; Rivers Angels, Bayelsa Queens, Naija Ratels, Nasarawa Amazons and runners up in the first edition, Delta Queens.

Ebomhania said that the tournament would be used to decide Nigeria’s representatives at the regional second edition of the CAF Women Champions League .

According to the statement, the participating teams qualified from the two group table of the NWFL, based on their placement in each group, in the regular season.

While Nasarawa Amazons, Edo Queens and Naija Ratels emerged the three best teams from their group, Bayelsa Queens, Rivers Angels and Delta Queens picked the three available tickets from their group .

It would be recalled that Edo Queens narrowly lost the top spot by a point to Nasarawa Amazons at the conclusion of the 2021/2022 regular season.

Ebomhiana said the host team was well motivated to clinch the top prize.

“Three matches are scheduled to be played daily. Two games will be played simultaneously by 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
