2018 CHAN: NFF offers Super Eagles 30% prize money


Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Amaju Pinnick has told Naijafootballplus.com in Morocco that the Federation has offered Super Eagles B team thirty percent (30%) of 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) prize money.

Nigeria will face host country Morocco on Sunday in the final of the 2018 CHAN at the Mohammed V stadium in Casablanca.

The home-based Super Eagles defeated Sudan 1-0 in the semi-final game in Marrakesh to make their historic first ever CHAN final.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) on November, 2016 increased the CHAN prize money to $1.25 million.

“We are proud of the team performance and we are happy for the success achieved so far in Morocco,” said Pinnick to Naijafootballplus.com.

“Apart from the special bonuses and allowances for the team, we have also offered the team 30% of the prize money. We hope to use the rest of the money to start preparing our cadet teams for their qualifiers this year.”
