The Paris 2024 Olympics qualifications for Nigeria's heroines, D'Tigress, now appear to be in jeopardy as a cash crunch is affecting the team's preparations ahead of the qualification series.
With just a few weeks remaining until the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualifier, reports from the Nigeria Basketball Federation indicate that they are struggling to raise funds for the preparation of D'Tigress.
The senior women’s basketball team remains the only team likely to qualify after the elimination of the male team, D'Tigers, in the qualifier played in Lagos.
The sports ministry is expected to take charge of the qualifier, and they will determine the timing for the team to commence the camping exercise.
Nigeria is drawn against the world champions, the United States, as well as Senegal and hosts Belgium in the qualifying campaign scheduled for Antwerp, Belgium, in February.
The qualifiers will run from February 8 to 11, 2024, in four different cities: Antwerp in Belgium, China, Sopron in Hungary, and Belem in Brazil.
