NFF Budget N7.5 Billion For 2020

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has earmarked a budget of 7.5 billion naira for its activities in 2020.

The figure was approved by the Congress of the NFF at the 75th Annual General Assembly (AGM) of the body held in Benin City, Edo State on Tuesday, 17 December.

The bulk of the sum is expected to cover financial considerations for World Cup and Nations Cup qualifiers for the Super Eagles as well as operating costs of the NFF secretariat.

Nigeria’s U23 Eagles and the women’s national team the Super Falcons failed to secure qualification to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

The Congress also approved the 2018 Financial Statement of the NFF although the final figures which the Congress mandated to be published in four national newspapers would be “subject to any further adjustment by external auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers”.
