The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed that the Super Falcons’ match bonuses and allowances have been paid.
NFF President Ibrahim Gusau made this announcement during a hearing with the House ad-hoc committee.
However, when questioned about unpaid allowances from the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Gusau explained that no funding was released for that tournament.
He did mention that $960,000 was given to all 32 countries that qualified for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
This money is intended for the preparation of the teams.
The NFF is funded by CAF and FIFA, receiving a subvention fund of $250,000 per annum from CAF.
The NFF does not receive payment from the federal government for its staff and officials.
The ad-hoc committee has requested documents regarding the funding of the Super Falcons in the 2019 World Cup and the breakdown of match bonuses payments.
