The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has denied the ban on Teslim Balogun Stadium, saying there is no ban on the stadium in Lagos.
According to reports indicated last week that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has banned Teslim Balogun Stadium, from hosting senior national team international games and men’s inter club competitions over lack of proper medical equipment and poor playing surface.
Other issues raised in a letter purportedly written by CAF to the NFF include, poor floodlights at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
It was stated that CAF suggested the playing surface gets a complete rehabilitation after a report on its standard shows it was a mix of many grass species and others are just weeds.
However, a top official of the NFF told the media on Tuesday thay there is no ban on Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
“There is no ban. The government of Lagos State started work on the highlighted areas even before the match against Cape Verde.”
While the Stadium is reportedly ban for now, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will have to provide a new venue for the Super Eagles home games in March.
