Nigeria: NFF organizes Futsal,Beach Soccer courses
The Beach Soccer course will take place at the Confluence Beach Hotel, Lokoja while the Futsal course holds at the FIFA Technical Cntre in Abuja on up till April 28.
Nigeria’s FIFA Instructor in beach soccer, Mr. Sunday Okayi, says the West African nation has huge potential in the game considering the vast coastal lines available. “With the nation’s vast coastal lines, it is the experts’ considered opinion that the development of beach soccer is imperative. Not only will its development engage our teeming youth population, taking them away from crime and other social vices, it will also serve to boost our cultural and sports tourism. “Already, the NFF has approached world football-governing body, FIFA to conduct a high-level Coaching and Refereeing Course for us to enable us build a sound and professional capacity as we aim to kick-start the Beach Soccer League before the end of this year. We have faith that FIFA will accede to our request,” said Okayi.
