Super Eagles, NFF Disagree Over AFCON 2023 Price Sharing Formula

Players of the Super Eagles and the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation are yet to agree on how the $4 Million prize money received from Confederation of African Football, for reaching the final of 2023 AFCON will be shared RovingNaija News reports.

The players have demanded 30% of this prize money, which comes down to $1.2 Million, while the NFF is pleading with them to take 25%, which is a Million Dollars.

“There is no agreement yet between the players and the NFF on how the prize money should be shared,” a top official said

“The mistake was that there was no agreement about this before the tournament, but at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, where the team finished third, the boys got 30% of the prize money CAF paid to the NFF.”

CAF paid the AFCON prize money to the NFF last month. It was previously reported that some of the players openly accused captain Ahmed Musa of not doing enough to ensure they are paid what they are entitled to.

This latest pay row should not be confused with the 12 Billion Naira generously approved by President Bola Tinubu in January to clear outstanding bonuses and allowances dating back to 2021.,
