The playoffs are scheduled to begin on July 18th at the National Stadium in Lagos. Ochuko Okworogun, the Dolphins' coach, said that the team had been training hard for two weeks.

"We have been grouped with Delta Force, Sunshine Angels and First Deepwater. The other group has First Bank, IGP Queens, Custom and Benue Princess.

"The top two teams in each group would advance to the semi-final while the winners of the round will play the final. We know it is not going to be an easy ride because other teams are equally preparing, but we are sure we will get to the final.

“Of all the teams in our group, Delta Force are likely to give us the toughest challenge essentially because they have played us before."

The Dolphins will be looking to improve on last season's runner-up finish.
