President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has assured the Super Falcons that the team will get sponsors ahead of the 2019 Fifa World Cup.

Pinnick said this earlier this week during a visit to the team after they won the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (Awcon) in Ghana.

Nigeria emerged winners of the competition by overcoming South Africa 4-3 on penalties in the final after the two sides had played goalless in regulation and extra-time periods.

“Already our sponsors are lining up to host and honour you for your achievement, as some State Governors who have indicated their interest in hosting you, but all that will be after the President hosts you,” he said.

“I want to congratulate and also thank you once again for what you did on Saturday, making us all proud.

“You see, you displayed the quintessential Nigerian Spirit. You showed that the Nigerian flag strengthened you and that is why, even during the extra time, you were not tired.”

According to her, “We are already working with the coach who has submitted his plans for the World Cup to us.

“Also, I am talking to some European Federation presidents and the President of European Union Football Association, Aleksander Ceferin to secure friendly matches for the team in preparation for the World Cup.”
