Abuja Stadium Lacks Facilities– NFF

The Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) on Wednesday claims that the Abuja National Stadium lacks basic facilities.

This is the reason, according to the Federation, why it has not been hosting national games there for a long period of time.

The NFF Secretary-General Mohammed Sanusi who spoke on behalf of the Federation, told the
News Agency of Nigeria that due to the lack of facilities, some states indicate interest in hosting the national teams.

NAN reports that the women’s national teams have taken refuge at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium,Benin, while the Super Eagles have been playing their matches at the Uyo Stadium .

Sanusi said, “Some of these states indicated their interest in hosting the teams and that is why we went there. The Abuja National Stadium is under renovation and so there is no facility for us to play our matches here.

“We have our technical centre here, but there are no dressing rooms. So we are making efforts to see if the dressing rooms can be provided. ”

However, the Secretary added that the football house was planning to take the matches of the teams across the country, so that Nigerians can watch their national teams play live.
