NFF appoints Wakanow as official travel partner

31 December 2013, 14:27

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the selection of Wakanow.com as the Official Travel and Tour Partner of the Federation for next year’s FIFA World Cup finals taking place in Brazil.

In this regard, Wakanow.com is officially licensed to arrange travel, accommodation and other logistics for Nigeria football family, fans and supporters willing to go to Brazil for the finals.

However, Wakanow.com will be able to do this for anyone or group only on confirmation of match tickets purchased from the NFF/FIFA PAMAS platform. The list of persons or organizations who have confirmed match tickets purchased from the NFF/PAMAS platform will be sent to Wakanow.com for purchase of travel packages.

A statement from NFF said tickets for the opening ceremony/match and other group phase matches are already on sale, on the NFF/FIFA PAMAS website, and interested parties are to contact the NFF directly on this as well as for purchase of hospitality suites. (Ticketing Officer: Tolu Abe - +234-703-9003-476).

The NFF has also cautioned that match tickets’ confirmation from FIFA, as well as travel and accommodation documents are pre-requisite for visa procurement from the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Brazil in Nigeria. For easier and quicker visa application process, persons or organizations who have purchased their match tickets from the NFF/PAMAS website and travel packages from Wakanow.com are advised to seek the assistance of Wakanow.com for their visa acquisition.

NFF’s Director of Marketing, Adama Idris, said on Monday: “We have chosen Wakanow.com as our Travel and Tour Partner for the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 because we are convinced about their capacity to do a great job of it. This is a huge project and only an outfit with capacity, high competence and track record of service delivery can cope well enough.”

Chief Marketing Officer and Director of Products of Wakanow.com, Mrs Stella Obinwa said: “We are elated as a company to have this opportunity to serve Nigerians willing to travel to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup finals. Our ability to deliver is not in question. As a company, we will put everything in place to ensure that Nigerians who travel to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup finals come back with memorable experience of a positive nature all-round.”
