Amputee Football Federation To Initiate League In Nigeria

The President of the Nigeria Amputee Football Federation, Alhaji Sulaiman Isah has hinted on initiating an Amputee Football League in the country.

Speaking in Minna, Niger State, Isah who was exchanging views with sportswriters said the federation had already set up a committee to reach out to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on how to fashion out the amputee league so that it can take-off smoothly.

He added; “we have a committee that will interface with the NFF to take a cue from the English FA which made it mandatory for all Premier League clubs to have amputee football clubsides.

“By so doing the amputee league in the country will start on a very sound footing.”

The President added that very soon the federation would offset its outstanding affiliation fees to the international body saying “the affiliation fee that had been outstanding for five years has made it impossible for the country to participate in amputee international competitions.

“We are owing huge sums of money for five years and all things being equal we should be able to pay the debt next week. It is a pity that this money was not paid for a very long time and our players have been training without going for competitions. “
