The Nigeria Football Federation is delighted to announce it has agreed a multi-year partnership with top Italian football club, AS Roma,

The partnership, which was unveiled  on Friday in Abuja, will see the NFF and Roma collaborate  together on and off the pitch, with one long term objective being for the club to help further grow and improve all levels of football in Nigeria.

Under the terms of the understanding , the two parties will share football, business and media expertise, with Roma offering the NFF technical and operational support and advice in the areas of youth coaching, player development, football administration and digital media best practices.

In return, the NFF will also collaborate with  the AS Roma in their projects and development Initiatives in Nigeria.

The two parties have also agreed to explore the possibility of AS Roma playing an exhibition match in Nigeria – something that club president Jim Pallotta has championed for some time.
