Nov 12, 2014 – Nigeria’s U20 Falconet Courtney Dike On Why She Rejected $7000 World Cup Bonus 

Courtney Dike one of the players for Super Falconet recently turned down $7000 bonus given to her by the FG on her return from the last victorious tournament.

The 19-year-old footballer said she rejected the money because it’s against NCAA regulations in the United States of America.

If she received the bonus, she would lose her $35,000 annual football scholarship at the Oklahoma State University under NCAA regulation.

Hear what Dike said through her spokesperson:

“I would like to respond to what I have been reading on the internet about rejecting bonuses. I am delighted to play for Nigeria whenever called upon. I knew before leaving for the U-20 World Cup that I would not accept any bonuses.

Acceptance of prize money is against NCAA regulations (the division 1 collegiate governing body) here in the US, so that is the main reason for rejecting it. Knowing this beforehand, I still chose to represent the country because I believed the experience would be more valuable than the money, and I was right.”

    Nobody should take Bezo seriously. He is a clown. This girl demonstrated a high sense of accountability and responsibility. College/University athletes are not supposed to receive monetary remunerations or gifts for participating in sports if not they risk losing their scholarships. Courtney Dike is right and should be commended and not vilified by some ignorant persons.
