The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), is expected to receive more cash from FIFA, as the world football governing body is increasing funds for the FIFA Forward Football Development Programme.
According to its report, FIFA says it is significantly ”increasing our financial support for member associations and football development to 5 million USD per four-year cycle for each member association from 1.6 million USD per cycle.”
What this means is that the NFF and other member associations, will be able access $750,000 per year.
The money will be for football projects like pitches, competitions and improving women’s football.
Confederations will now receive $40million per four-year cycle for football development, an increase from $22million.
