Some D’Tigers players have cried out over the nonavailability of funds for their FIBA Basketball World Cup preparation, barely two weeks to the start of the tournament in China.
This is not the first time sportsmen would be complaining. Last month, the home based D’Tigers had to travel by road to Mali for the inaugural edition of the FIBA AfroCan. .
Also, the D’Tigress also faced financial challenges and had to delay their departure for the FIBA Women’s Afrobasket 2019 in Senegal by two days. The team however left for Dakar when the Nigeria Basketball Federation could raise funds.
It was gathered that the sports ministry is yet to release any fund for the team’s World Cup preparation and travel logistics. Nigeria Basketball Federation has been catering for itself and corporate sponsorship in the last two years.
