    The stadium that hosted the inaugural Aisha Buhari tournament has a world class turf.It won’t be a bad idea to play C.A.R.in that beautiful pitch

    • Obinna Obi 3 years ago

      Yes you are right, but I don’t think Fifa will approve the pitch because of its size

      • Greenturf 3 years ago

        I think the size of the pitch is standard,rather the stadium capacity and infrastructure may not meet FIFA’s standard

        • Cherished 3 years ago

          The venue can be approved. If the Aisha Buhari cup was graded a FIFA tourney.

  • But why can’t the Lagos state government have the same pitch like the one used for Aisha Buhari tourney in Teslim Balogun stadium too that pitch is really fantastic and is as if the stand is covered too unlike TBS.

    That was Onikan Stadium, have we gotten to that point? playing a qualifier match at Onikan Stadium? The newly refurbished MKO Abiola’s stadium in Abuja equally has a green and beautiful grass too why can’t the match be played there? We should be talking about the eagles playing in that stadium and not suggesting Onikan Stadium
