NFF disowns the female football foundation

The Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday stated that it has not in anyway endorsed a group calling itself The Female Football Foundation to hold a launch to support the national women’s football team, Super Falcons towards its campaign at this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany.

NFF General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu said in Abuja that the mission and objectives of the group remain unclear to the football-governing body in the land since it had failed to seek  endorsement from the NFF.

“We do not have a clear idea of what the group is doing, and it would be wrong on our part to associate with the launch. The group has not through any written documentation sought for approval for what it is doing, or the endorsement of the Nigeria Football Federation for the project.

“In as much as we would approve of genuine efforts by private individuals and companies to help propel women’s football in Nigeria and also to support our women’s team’s campaign at the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in Germany this summer, we are compelled by decency and diligence to disassociate ourselves from this initiative that has failed to seek NFF’s endorsement”, stated Amadu.

The Female Football Foundation has made newspaper publications to the effect that it is launching a private, welfare, insurance and  nurture (win) initiative for the Super Falcons’ June 2011 World Cup bid, at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Ikeja on Wednesday, 18th May, 2011.
