NFF approves digitalisation proposal for football management


Defending champions the Olympic Eagles of Nigeria got off their campaign at the 2019 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations on a dour note following a 1-0 loss to Cote d’Ivoire at the Al Salam Stadium, Cairo, on Saturday evening.

A digitalisation proposal by AJ Consult, a UK-based global information and communication technology service company has been approved by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The major basis of the project is to embark on the digitalisation of certain operations of the Federation alongside developing holistic software to solve the general needs of the NFF.

With the approval of the NFF, AJ Consult will develop, among other platforms and solutions, an all-in-one media/communication platform for media management, technical team platform and a third-party performance monitoring management system for the football Federation.

Added to that catalogue will be a game-day data management system, a record management solution in form of an e-library and an online live media platform for viewers via pay-per-view format that will further the viewership growth plans of the domestic league.

Mohammed Sanusi, the Secretary General of the NFF, made allusions to this when he said: “The present NFF administration is one that is untiring in seeking new and refreshing ways of doing things, and up-scaling its methods and strategies to meet with ever-changing technological demands.

“Our acceptance of this proposal is based on the need to take our media and communication operations to new levels with the tremendous opportunities available in the digital communication space of today.”
