Nigeria Football Association: Increase of Prize Money for 2013 FA Cup Winners Planned

The Nigeria Football Association, NFA, said on Thursday that the prize money for the 2013 FA Cup will be changed.

NFFThe Director of Technical Department of the NFA, Mohammed Sanusi, said this at the FA Cup draws which held in Abuja.

Though Mr. Sanusi did not say whether the money will be increased or reduced, football analysts had complained that the N500, 000 given to last year’s winners, Heartland of Owerri, was too small.

“There’s likely to be a change in the prize money compared to the money that was given to the winner last year. We have not yet arrived at a particular amount of money but we still have to wait till the technical committee meet.

Mr. Sanusi the competition will witness a little shake up.

“There’s a little different from what we did last year too. This year before it was four at the final stage but this year it will be two teams that will emerge and go to the venue for the final match, this is applicable to both male and female team,” he said.

While the date of the commencement of the FA cup is yet to be confirmed, the technical department of the NFA has proposed June 26 to the board.

The final match will, however, still hold at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.
