The NFF President has called on match commissioners of the elite division of the domestic game to improve their capacity and delivery in order to help attract corporate interest and support.
The representative of the NFF President, Shehu Dikko Speaking earlier today at the opening ceremony of a 3-day seminar for Match Commissioners of the NPFL, NWFL, and NNL announced that the days of match commissioners in football could be numbered “if you do not up to your game.
Dikko said: “These days, even at higher levels, match coordinators are gaining in relevance and their reports are being taken more seriously. It is left for match commissioners to up their game, improve their capacity and regain their high relevance.
You must enhance yourself in every way possible so that your reports can become more robust and engaging, and guide administrators to take the right decisions. You have been doing a lot of work but you need to move at a faster pace now.
It is important that we not only maintain the standards of previous years but also improve on them.
This is the reason why we have put together a panel of experts in their different fields of professional endeavour to shed light on different aspects of match commissioning in order for us to further improve our acts for the upliftment of the Nigerian game.
