The Ongwediva Queens football team is representing the north in the FNB Women's Super League - a task they carry out with pride.

The Ongwediva Queens are among the newcomers in the Women's Super League this year after the team bought the status of another club in 2020 to become a fully fledged team on their own.

Players have been roped in to make the team a formidable combination capable of competing in the country's top-flight women's league.

The club represent the north as it is the only team from there campaigning in the elite league with players at its disposal coming from various towns in the northern regions.

The team's long-time resolution is to remain in the Super League for many years to come hence their appeal for good samaritans to offer financial help, while good players in Ohangwena, Oshikoto, Omusati, Oshana and from Opuwo are welcome to join.

Two teams will be relegated at the end of the season in June this year, with no other teams being promoted to the league - a scenario Ongwediva Queens will want to avoid.

The Ongwediva Queens who use the Oshakati Independence Stadium as their home ground have started the current campaign with mixed results. Last weekend's game against Galz and Goals ended in a 2-1 home defeat.
