NFF To Fly 22 Refs To England

By Sab Osuji:

The Nigeria Football Federation is sending another batch of 22 referees and six officials to England for capacity building, completesportsnigeria.com reports.
They are expected to depart for England this month after experiencing a delay.

Completesportsnigeria.com understands that the 28-man contingent will be led by an NFF executive committee member, while new NRA President, Azeez Oguntade, will lead the referees that consists of the nation's best arbiters including referee Patrick Adigwe.

Completesportsnigeria.com's checks reveal that the contingent, who will spend two weeks in England, have gone through visa interviews at the British High Commission in Abuja.

"Its a good working relationship between NFF and their British FA counterparts to improve Nigeria football and I'm happy to be part of it this time around," offers one of delegation members.

The delegation was originally expected to travel out to England on June 1 with June 15 as its return date.

But right now, with visa yet to be granted, the trip is on hold pending when the document will be granted.
