Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has revealed that the Golden Eaglets would be accommodated at Royal Palace Hotel during their campaign at the 11th African U-17 Championship in Niger.
The newly-built is reportedly a four-star facility and the NFF has already secured rooms for the team after thorough inspection by Director of Competitions, Muhammed Sanusi.
According to him, the Royal Palace Hotel is tidy and within close proximity to the Stade Général Seyni Kountché (SGSK) multi-purpose stadium where Golden Eaglets will play their first two matches against host Niger and Guinea on February 15 and 18 respectively.

"The NFF is doing the best to ensure there won't be any hitch when you travel to Niamey and we have secured your accommodation at the Royal Palace Hotel," informed Sanusi.
"In fact, we are very lucky since you are going to be the only team to be accommodated there after the ballot for hotels were made in Equatorial Guinea by CAF.
"I'm confident you won't have much difficulty even with the weather since coming to Sokoto has provided you the opportunity to acclimatize before going to Niamey," added Sanusi.
Meanwhile, the Local Organising committee of Niger 2015 has appointed Haruna as the Team Liaison officer (TLO) to the Golden Eaglets. Haruna reportedly has close affinity with Nigerians after playing for Lobi Stars and Kano Pillars in the past.
