2022 WCQ: Teslim Balogun Stadium Ready To Host Nigeria Vs Liberia -Aiyepeku

The Chairman, Lagos state Sports Commission, Sola Aiyepeku, has confirmed that the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos is in perfect condition to host Friday’s 2022 World Cup qualifier between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Liberia.

Aiyepeku stated this in an interview with NAN, where he said that the stadium is now wearing a different look for the game.

He extended big appreciation to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for securing the right to host the game in Lagos.

“The road has been a tough ride, but it is a good thing getting our facility ready for the World Cup qualifiers. We have what it takes to prepare the place in readiness for the match.

“Going round on inspection, our facility managers are already on ground, the groundsmen, sweepers, the pitch managers and other logistics, being put in place.

“We are so lucky to have our sport loving governor, who gave his approval, and I want to thank Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for making it happen because he shares our vision.

“If not for Governor Sanwo-Olu’s vision, we will not have come to this point and also the good thing is that the Super Eagles themselves love Lagos,” he said.

      That stadium is actually in Morocco…..The grand Stade D’Ágadir.

      FIFA banned quite a number of stadia from hosting WCQ matches, chief amongst them is that millet farm we played on in Freetown. CAR will also be playing their home games in Cameroon too. I watched them play Cabo Verde in the newly built Japooma Stadium yesterday. FIFA sure knows the place of good facilities in the game of football.

      But the way dem use crayon colour this Teslim Balogun Stadium for this picture get as e be o. I come dey wonder if this is the same stadium in which the SE where training in the video posted earlier on in another thread

  • Teslim Balogun stadium is artificial pitch not natural grass for good football, a case of many nigeria tragedy. Till tomorrow morning no standard regular stadium for the national teams hhhhhmm. Nigeria Nsogbu di kwanu. Up SuperEagle

     
    • Oga it’s natural grass.

       
      • Pls its not except if there’s a renovation work done on it for natural grass which the public isn’t aware of because from the day of commissioning it was artificial grass this i know so pls when did lagos state government carry out re-grassing work on the pitch ? Waiting for your response thanks

    IF AKWA-IBOM CAN BUILD NEW STADIUM, TO ME IT IS A BIG SHAME THAT LAGOS STATE CANNOT BUILD NEW ULTRA MODERN STADIUM AROUND ATLANTIC CITY WHERE FANS CAN EASILY BOARD FERRY BOAT TO THE VENUE( which can reduce much traffic on road), UPON THE MUCH MONEY THEY REALIZED ON LAND-USE-CHARGES, TOLLGATE, TAXES, STREETS, LOCAL GOVT.
    LAGOS IS THE MOST POPULAR CITY/STATE WELL RECOGNIZE BY THE WORLD. BALOGUN STADIUM IS BELOW SENIOR INC. STANDARD. IT CANNOT EVEN BE ACCEPTED BY CAF TO HOST SENIOR NATION CUP. The city of Surulere looks like ancient city of my village.
    NIGERIA, LAGOS, NFF OR PRIVATE SECTORS: PLEASE LET BUILD NEW STADIUM AROUND ATLANTIC OCEAN CITY.
    ORDINARY GHANA, EQ.GUINEA CAN BOAST OF FIVE NEW STADIA THAT CAN HOST SENIOR FIFA WORLD CUP.
    INFACT I DEY SHAME ! ! !

     
  • Why do u think Naija need new stadiums, Nigeria can boost of ten and more. Why built more when just a few renovation, the stadia will be at its best!

     
  • Edoman 3 weeks ago

    Why the NFF turns their back on Uyo Stadium is beyond my understanding.

     
    • JimmyBall 3 weeks ago

      @Edoman… That Uyo turf is also suffering from poor maintenance now. It has brown patches now everywhere and has become bumpy. It’s not the smooth lush green turf you used to know. Akwa United uses it often.

       
  • SHAMEFUL. No other stadium but this old rickety ground. It’s all corruption.
