Two Nigerian women clubs, Air Warriors and MFM Queens of Lagos have gained automatic tickets to the 2019 FIBA Africa Club championship to be played in December.
They will no longer participate in the FIBA Zone Three Women Club Championship elimination series.
Air Warriors, who made their debut in the women’s league were crowned the 2019 Women Basketball League Champions after a hard-earned 55-53 points victory against MFM Queens in the final.
MFM on their part improved on their 2018 season when they finished fourth under coach Aderemi Adewunmi to win their first ever silver medal.
FIBA Africa will decide the final host of the competition between Angola and Madagascar who have both indicated interest to host the apex women’s club championship in Africa.
