The Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation met via video conference on Monday, 10th August 2020 to deliberate on important issues in Nigerian Football and came up with quite a number of resolutions.
The NFF said that after “consultations with the leadership of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports,” the Board endorsed the proposal from the Secretariat for the lump sum of $2,000,000.00 (Two Million American dollars only) to be shared across the various clubs and governing bodies of the various leagues.
These are Nigeria Professional Football League, Nigeria National League, Nigeria Women Football League and the Nigeria Nationwide League, as a booster for their preparation ahead of the 2020/2021 League Season. The total sum is made up of $1,000,000 (being FIFA’s support for restarting the football season); $500,0000 (being FIFA’s dedicated support for women’s football); $300,000 (CAF’s support to its Member Associations); $200,000 (NFF’s support from Sponsors’ Funds).
