The NFF on Monday in Lagos launched a short code – *1945# – which will be used for all campaigns that are geared towards Nigeria’s preparation and participation at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.
NFF President Amaju Pinnick and 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi also spoke at the event, just as STA’s Managing Director Biodun Jagun and a clutch of NFF’s current partners, including AITEO Group, Zenith Bank, and TGI Group.
NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC Chairman Shehu Dikko, who is also Chairman of Marketing, Sponsorship, and Television Advisory Committee, disclosed that the shortcode would be available for use by all NFF partners, sponsors, and suppliers.
“The Naija 4 Russia initiative is born in due season as a feel-good factor for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, which is at its highest-ever in the recent history of Nigerian Football.
For the first time in the history of football in Nigeria, we have a VAS platform for the fans and supporters of Nigerian Football by way of a shortcode.
Super Eagles’ stars Odion Ighalo and Ikechukwu Ezenwa were present, as well as former Eagles’ skipper Mutiu Adepoju, one of 16 players to have scored for Nigeria in five previous FIFA World Cup outings.
