The Nigeria Football Federation on Monday launched a quarterly magazine that will detail the events, activities and programmes of the Federation, the various National Teams and other key aspects of Nigeria Football. The magazine will be known as NFF News.
General Secretary of the Federation, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, who as head of administration is the editor-in-chief of the publication, said the all-colour magazine will document for posterity the activities, events and programmes of the NFF, capturing and freezing in time texts and photos on major footballing issues and actions for generations to come.
“It will be distributed to several interests, concerns and institutions within and outside the football family, within Nigeria and internationally.
“It will be of very high quality, and will be in the mould and character of FIFA News published by the world football –governing body. It will be made available to all stakeholders, from the Presidency to the National Assembly, critical and supportive ministries, departments and agencies, our partners and sponsors, government offices in the States, the NFF Congress, local football councils, supporters of the various National Teams, our vibrant media representatives and other bodies and concerns that work or seek to work with Nigeria Football.
“It will be a regular magazine containing news, features, articles on sports medicine, football business and the likes. It will always be a rich package worthy of the time and effort to go through a copy.”
The magazine is packaged by Peachtree Communications, headed by foremost Nigeria football writer and editor of several decades, Mr Gboyega Okegbenro, with NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, as editor. Mr Mohammed Ameenu, special assistant to the General Secretary, is assistant editor.
