The Nigeria Football Federation will receive an additional $750,000 from FIFA as part of the profit from sponsorship of this year’s World Cup.
The money – which is separate from the $8 million guaranteed by the Super Eagles’ qualification for the World Cup – is a part of the $200 million the world football governing body will pay to its 209 members and six regional confederations.
During their annual meeting held in Sao Paulo earlier in the week, FIFA’s deputy general secretary, Markus Kattner, revealed that this year’s World Cup will generate $4.5 billion, bettering previous estimates of $3.8 billion.
National associations like the NFF will receive $750,000 each, while confederations will receive two payments totalling $7 million.
This year’s bonuses are about 40 percent higher than what was paid out in South Africa four years ago.
