“The NWFL board is compelled to shift the date of the NWPL Super Four championship due to the FIFA U20 World Cup qualifying matches between Nigeria’s Falconets and Tanzania.

“Teams and officials are expected to arrive in Benin on Oct. 7 while the teams will use the time in between to train and unwind for competition proper commencing on Oct. 9.

“The decision is a difficult one but we took into consideration the fact that many of the players, who will be involved in the FIFA U20 World Cup qualifying matches including the head coach, Christopher Danjuma, are part and parcel of the Super 4 championship.
