The Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF) on Monday said the major challenge facing the federation was getting sponsors for its programmes.
Okon Ukpong, the NCF Team Manager, said in Lagos that the federation had lots of grassroots developmental programmes waiting to be executed.
According to him, corporate bodies tend to give the impression that the federation is under the National Sports Commission (NSC) and as such, they find it difficult to sponsor their programmes.
“Generally, now we are trying to see that our programmes are executed. We are having issues in getting sponsors for our programmes, especially our grassroots programmes.’’
Ukpong said that the federation intended to organise an administrative course for its officials and also a National U-15 competition.
He said, however, that the federation was making some slow but steady progress in ensuring that its programmes were executed.
