In its continued commitment to women’s football, Spanish La Liga recently provided two Master-class sessions for coaches of the Nigerian Women Football League.
La Liga has through this has further strengthen the relations between both institutions with these online classes, within the existing MoU with the highest competition in the African country, the NWFL.
These sessions consisted of some adapted and selected contents that are part of a new comprehensive programme developed by La Liga, called “La Liga Women’s Football Coaching Methodology”.
The original programme consists of a series of in-person courses organised into different levels of complexity, from the grassroots to the elite, focused on the specialties of women’s football.
According to NWFL Chairperson, Aisha Falode: “The NWFL and La Liga have identified common grounds in our goals and vision for the future. Progress has been made and grounds covered in our partnership with La Liga since we signed the MOU in 2018.
“Although a lot of work has gone into the activation points of the MOU in the last few months, the training-the-trainers programme is the first engagement entry point into many more activations to come within the scope of our MOU.
“Our goal here at the NWFL is simple and direct and it aligns with La Liga’s, “to be a global league brand and among the best women leagues in the world”.
La Liga Delegate in Nigeria, Guillermo Pérez, said “At La Liga, we are extremely happy about the success of this first edition of the online master classes.
NWFL is one of our key partners in Nigeria and, activating the MoU between both entities, was one of our priorities for this season. The fact that Nigeria was the first country in which we’ve trained through this new format and methodology, proves how important Nigeria is in La Liga’s international development and how committed we are to the local football development. We hope this will be the first activation of many more to come with NWFL.
