The board of the Nigeria Women Football League has demanded to be paid a percentage of the FIFA largesse to Nigerian clubs whose players were paraded at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
According to the league’s operating officer, Ayo Abdulraham, the women league deserves to be recognized and given its due, saying there is no player on the Super Falcons team to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France that did not play in the local league at one time or the other.
He added that the increased standard
of the local league has amplified the chances of the Nigeria national teams to
record success in international competitions.
