NFF admits, Explain why Falconets washed their own kits during World Cup


The Nigeria Football Federation has explained why its U20 Women’s NT,  the Falconets, washed their jersey during their stay at the World Cup in Costa Rica.

Reports claimed the Falconets were subjected to poor treatment by the Federation, and were spotted washing jerseys after matches.


In addition the young ladies were not supplied official footwear and were asked instead to buy their own footwear.
Reacting to the reports, the Nigeria Football Federation, in a statement denied reports and explain why the girls opted to wash their own jerseys.
“The players were handed three sets of green jerseys and two sets of white jerseys, several house-wear types and training jerseys.”
“The players opted to wash only their jersey top (no other stuff) because when the first set of body-wear was sent to the laundry people at the hotel, it returned with some FIFA and NFF badges at the front and names at the back peeled by the machine,” The NFF explained in a statement.
