NFF borrows N50m for Eagles vs Ethiopia match

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will again have to borrow for next weekend's 2014 World Cup playoff against Ethiopia, officials disclosed.

The NFF need at least 50 million Naira for a November 16 playoff for a place at next year's World Cup in Brazil.

This cost has been reduced because of the part sponsorship from the Cross Rivers State Government.

This will be to cover match bonuses as well as the return ticket refunds for the team and also logistical costs.

"We will again be forced to borrow to fund this match," a top NFF official told MTNFootball "We are seriously broke as we only receive a monthly subvention of 52 million Naira from government and this is far from adequate to cover our many costs."
