NFF yet to pay Super Falcons WAFCON bonuses

The Super Falcons are still waiting for the country’s football federation (NFF) and Sports Ministry to settle outstanding debts from last month’s Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) and other training camps.

The team had boycotted training before their third-place play-off against Zambia, on 22 July, over the non-payment of both bonuses and allowances.

Each player is owed over $10,000, which includes win bonuses for their three victories en route to the semi-finals in Morocco.

The NFF insists the money will be paid soon, but one member of the squad said the players have been “told different lies”.

“They said the money had been approved and will get to us in a few days’ time – that was before the game against Zambia,” the player told BBC Sport Africa.

“It’s now gone from that to ridiculous excuses like wrong account numbers to network issues. The lies and disrespect clearly shows that they love to treat the women’s team like an unwanted child.

“The Sports Ministry was always quick to celebrate our success with big statements, but since this money problem started they’ve been very quiet.

“Imagine if one of their own daughters was playing for Nigeria – would they treat her like that?”
