The Teslim Balogun Stadium has been banned from hosting senior national team international games and Men’s interclub competitions.
In a letter by CAF to the NFF, a number of concerns were raised with the playing surface, floodlights and unavailability of medical center within the grounds of the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
CAF has suggested the playing surface gets a complete redo after a report on its standard shows it was a mix of “many grass species and others are just weeds”.
The Teslim Balogun hosted a couple of Nigeria’s AFCON 2022 qualifying matches and all its home legs of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
As a result of the ban, which takes effect after the final group qualifiers of the World Cup qualifiers, the NFF will now seek alternative grounds in Country to host the play-off round of the World Cup qualifier.
