Abuja - The hurricane of collaboration blowing round Nigeria football gathered pace on Thursday with the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) and the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA).

During the brief ceremony at the Nigeria Football Federation secretariat in Abuja, Chairperson of the NWFL, Dilichukwu Onyedinma said the collaboration had been in the pipeline for a long time, as the body sought to give more value to Nigeria women football.

She harped on the quality of the NWFL brand and the pedigree of Nigeria football internationally, recalling that the Super Falcons are six –time champions of the continent, having also attended all FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in history, while the U-20 and U-17 girls have also been at every edition of their World Cup tournaments.

“Nigeria women football is a great brand and the Nigeria Television Authority is also the largest television network in Africa. We are happy to collaborate with NTA.”

Responding, NTA’s General Manager (Sports), Akinloye Oyebanji disclosed that the preparation of the MOU was the first official assignment performed by the new Director –General of NTA, Sola Omole.

“We are very happy to finally seal this pact today, as this underscores NTA’s non-discrimination policy.

“Whether it is the FIFA World Cup final or some youth football tournament in the remotest part of Nigeria, NTA is there to cover it.”
