AFN sets A, B & C Int’l standards ahead of 2018

The new board of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) has began work in earnest to ensure that their tenure will outclass that of their predecessors. With that being said, the 2017/2018 Athletics season is set to get underway on Nov 24, 2017 with the AFN All Comers in Abuja while the 1st AFN Golden League will hold on Dec. 1-2nd in Kaduna.

The new board have also come up with a considerate plan as they have released THREE standards to enable athletes qualify to compete at different International Competitions. We wish every athlete the very best!
