The Nigeria Football Federation has earmarked a total of N7 .5 billion for total expenditure of the Federation in the coming year. This amounts to $193,049,000.
Sports Village Square gathered from the communique the body released at the end of its Annual General Meeting in Benin on Tuesday, its Executive Committee approved the 2018 Financial Statement and the proposed 2020 Budget.
In the in coming year, the country will be involved in World Cup qualifying series from March and resumes in August, the pursuit for a place at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Committee rued the unimpressive outing of the U17 and U20 National Teams in global championships this year, as well as the non-qualification of the Super Falcons and the U23 men team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
It resolved that henceforth, players, coaches and backroom staff of National Teams would be tasked to work much harder in their different positions to bring honour to the country from any international match/championship.
Board was particularly unhappy about the performances of the Super Falcons and the U23 boys despite the active and tremendous support and encouragement of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports.
