The registration costs that Clubs must pay to compete in this year’s Federation Cup competition have been reduced by the Nigeria Football Federation’s Executive Committee.
The female Clubs would only pay the sum of N50,000, compared to the male Clubs’ payment of N70,000 to compete this year.
The NFF Board decided to evaluate the fees downwards in order to attract many more Clubs to join in this year’s competition in both the men’s and women’s categories, Ag. Director of Competitions Ruth David told thenff.com.
The program itself has not changed from what was formally conveyed to the Football Association in the 36 States and the FCT, despite the lower registration prices.
Registration of Clubs will hold over a fortnight between 16th – 30th January, while submission of completed players’ forms for production of licenses will be done 31st January – 6th February.
This year’s Federation Cup competition in the various States and the FCT will take place between 18th February and 19th March, with the States and the FCT expected to submit the names of their two representatives in the national competition to the NFF by 20th March.
Dates for the playoff matches, the National Draws and the different stages of the national competition will be determined in due course.
