The rehabilitation of grassing the football pitch and installation of two new brand Digital Electronic Scoreboards at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja has been completed according to Sports Minister Sunday Dare.
The Super Eagles may now get the chance to play their subsequent home games at the Stadium, following the completion of renovation work at the ground.
Nigeria has been playing their home games recently at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos which looks more like the Eagles are already feeling at home in Lagos this days.
However, with the completion of the Abuja Stadium, the Nigerian fans might get to see a change of home for Super Eagles.
Sunday Dare while speaking with the State House Correspondents during the Weekly Special Briefings coordinated by the Presidential Communications Team at Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“It is my wish that the Super Eagles and indeed the national teams of Nigeria, like elsewhere, have a permanent venue to play their matches than playing from one place to another.”
“There are great benefits for countries national teams to have a particular venue where the players understand very well. I believe very soon the Super Eagles will be playing their matches in Abuja or Lagos if the national stadium is fully ready too.”
“The good news is that by next month the contractors handling the MKO Abiola Stadium will hand it over to the ministry.”
