So it is the Super 6 that will decide who wins the 2020/2021 Nigeria Women Football league Premiership season.

The NWFL Premiership season was due to end on July 17 but with the CAF Women’s Champions League qualifiers scheduled to hold in May, the league body and all 14 clubs chose to bring the campaign to an early conclusion — with the Super Six tournament to determine the league winners who will go on to represent Nigeria at the qualifiers.
Draws for the competition will be held on April 18 and each matchday will feature three games.
There will be five matchdays, with each of them featuring three games.
The top team will represent Nigeria at the CAF Women’s Champions League qualifiers (West Africa Zone) — which is scheduled to hold in May — and also crowned NWFL Premiership champions.
Meanwhile, a venue and date have yet to be decided for the relegation play-offs, which will determine the two bottom teams that will drop into the NWFL Championship.
