The Nigeria Football Federation is expected to receive $300,000 as grant from the Confederation of African Football to help cushion the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Football in Africa has been disrupted since the outbreak of the pandemic in March.

CAF’s grant comes one week after FIFA announced that all member associations would be given a universal solidarity grant of $1m, with an additional $500,000 specifically for women’s football.

According to CAF, the fund is to help member associations to mitigate challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
