The Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have dashed the financial hopes of six arms of the national teams following a resolution that players and officials of age-grade National Teams will be paid only qualification bonus.

This was made known in a communique issued after the NFF board presided over by the president of the federation Amaju Pinnick met in Asaba on Tuesday.

The communique read that “Board re-inforced an earlier resolution that youth competitions are developmental, and that only qualification bonus would be paid to players and officials of age –grade National Teams. In addition, the Board resolved to closely monitor the age –grade National Teams (U15, U17 & U20) in order to ensure that the coaches follow the Board’s mandate to have players graduating from the NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles Program, and in that wise resolved to closely monitor the current U20 squad.”

The Board also resolved to closely monitor the age –grade National Teams (U15, U17 & U20) in order to ensure that the coaches follow the Board’s mandate to have players graduating from the NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles Program, and in that wise resolved to closely monitor the current U20 squad.

It will be recalled that in August this year, the Federal government had approved the payment of all camp allowances and match bonuses accruing to the National U-20 Women’s team, the Falconets as stated by the Sports Minister, Barr Solomon Dalung.
