Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has taken time to
brief the country’s representatives at the 2014 CAF club tournaments.
Kano Pillars and Enyimba will represent Nigeria in the 2014
CAF Champions League, while Bayelsa United and Warri Wolves will feature at the
CAF Confederation Cup.
In a meeting at the NFF Secretariat on Monday, chaired by
Director of Competitions, Mohammed Sanusi, the NFF informed the clubs that they
must ensure genuine medical certificates of fitness for all their registered
players. In addition, secure insurance cover for all players, work hand-in-hand with their
State FA, provide standard lush-green pitch, pay the way of CAF-appointed match
officials, arrange accommodation and local transportation for opponents.
“For your away trips, you must work together with the NFF to
secure your visas in good time and must be of good conduct in everything you do,
because those you are going to play away will still come and play you at home,”
Sanusi said in a press statement made available to News24 Nigeria.
He also told the clubs that they must provide air transportation
for the visiting opponents for any distance that is superior to 200 kilometres,
in line with CAF regulation.
