Club secretaries or any other designated club official compulsorily are to forward required information and documents to the Nigeria Football Federation FIFA Connect Office in Abuja.
This is to ensure that the deadline line for the exercise Monday 26th as stipulated by FIFA is met.
The FIFA Connect Project is designed as a registration portal where all football stakeholders, including players, coaches, referees and other administrators are registered.
It means that all in Nigeria football are registered in a centralized platform with each having a unique ID to identify him/her through out their playing career.
It also enables the tracking of the career history of players and automatically generate player passports during transfers thus ending the constant problem of producing player international players passports at every transfer, amongst others.
