The second edition of the Sudan Women’s League got underway on Saturday, 26 December 2020 with a limited number of supporters at the stadium.
The first game saw Hilal El Obeid hammer Mourda El Obeid 7-0 at Obeid Stadium, while Al Ahly and Nogom Al Salam played to a 1-all draw in the same group. The remaining groups will kick-off next January.
The 2020/21 season will consist of 23 teams divided in four groups namely Khartoum, Obeid, Kadougli and Wad Madani. Each group has six teams while Obeid includes just five.
The top two teams in every group will advance to the next round, with Khartoum group given two more tickets reserved for the last season’s winners Al Difaa and runners up Al Tahadi, despite the positions they finish at in the group.
Mervat Hussein Al Sadig, Head of Women Football in Sudan’s Football Association, confirmed the next season will see a Super Women League for the top ten teams, while the remaining sides compete in a lower division, as a part of Women Football development plan.
