In a bid to give the senior women’s national team more support during matches, President of the Super Eagles Supporters Club, Prince Vincent Okumagba has launched a dedicated support group called the Super Falcons Supporters Club, SFSC.
In a statement made available to the media department, Prince Okumagba said this was necessary as the Super Falcons are the pride of the nation and have distinguished themselves in so many ways.
“We have always supported the Super Falcons of Nigeria and our female teams since the creation of the Super Eagles Supporters Club.
“We have looked at it closely that we need to give our support towards the Falcons and also give them an identity, being the most successful team in Africa and a role model for our age grade teams; hence the creation of Super Falcons Supporters Club”.
Prince Okumagba hinted that the Super Falcons Supporters Club, an affiliate of SESC will support all national female teams.
“The Super Falcons Supporters Club will hence forth support the Super Falcons, Under 20, being the Falconets and the U17 team, the Flamingos.
“The Super Eagles Supporters Club will cater for the Super Eagles, the Under 23, the Flying Eagles and the Golden Eaglets”.
Before the new name was birthed, the Super Eagles Supporters Club was in Ghana to cheer the Super Falcons to victory as they won the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in 2018, at the 2019 FIFA Women World Cup and at the 2018 FIFA U20 Women World Cup both in France.
Ahead of the 2022 AWCON Qualifiers, the Super Falcons Supporters Club will be on ground at the MKO, Abiola Stadium, Abuja to cheer the team against the Lady Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire.
The 11-time champions will play the Lady Elephants on Friday, February 18 at the refurbished MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja.
The second leg, on Wednesday, February 23, will take place at the Stade Robert Champroux, Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
