FIFA has said the 2023 Women’s World Cup prize money will now be paid directly to the players.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, the FIFA secretary-general, Fatma Samoura, noted that the change in policy was due to unpaid allowance issues involving Nigeria.
Ahead of the tournament, head coach of the Super Falcons, Randy Waldrum, claimed that some of his players have not been paid “per diem and bonuses” from two years ago.
Samoura has acknowledged that “things have been tough” for the Nigerian ladies.
“I know that things have been tough. We have to face the realities of Nigeria. It pains me a lot.
“It is because of you [the Super Falcons] that, for the first time, the prize money has been ring-fenced in the history of FIFA to ensure that it goes to you,” Samoura said.
