The final Match Week of the 2023/2024 Nigeria Women's Premier League season has sealed the fate of some teams in the league, as Naija Ratels of Abuja escaped relegation on the last day in the Group A pairings.

The duo of Edo Queens and Bayelsa Queens also joined the four other qualified teams – Nasarawa Amazons, Confluence Queens, Heartland Queens, and Rivers Angels – in the Super Six playoffs of the league.

The final Match Week began on Wednesday with six matches played in various stadiums across the country, while the remaining two games were played on Thursday.

In the game played at the Asaba Township Stadium, Edo Queens held defending champions Delta Queens to a one-all draw, but the score was enough to seal a Super Six spot for the Godwin Obaseki ladies.

Meanwhile, Bayelsa Queens lost 1-2 to Robo Queens, but their 22 points in 14 games were enough to secure a spot in the final six.

Last week, Naija Ratels of Abuja were in seventh place in Group A, one spot above relegation, and a defeat in their last game against Abia Angels would have seen them relegated to the Nigeria Women's Football League (NWFL) championship.

However, fortunes smiled on the Abuja-based team as they defeated Abia Angels 3-0 to avoid relegation and finish in fifth place in Group A with 17 points in 14 games.

Elsewhere, Royal Queens and Sunshine Queens were relegated as the bottom teams in Group A and B.

The date of the Super Six playoffs is yet unknown, but they will eventually determine the winner of the league.
