Nigeria’s football governing body has concluded plans to send 20 referees to England for training, a top official said on Friday.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick made the announcement at a maiden Southwest States Football Forum held in southwest city of Abeokuta in Ogun State.
He said 30 had attended training earlier in the year, stressing that the training was to acquaint them with modern trends in the sport.
Pinnick warned that those found wanting would be blacklisted, adding that the federation expect the officials to reciprocate the gesture by giving their best.
He told his audience that the federation had a program for coaches, while advising referees to develop themselves in the best ways possible.
