Niger Tornadoes Retain Lokoja As Home Venue


By Adeboye Amosu:


Nigeria Professional Football League club Niger Tornadoes have confirmed they will play their home games at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja next season, reports

The Minna- based club adopted the ground as their home venue last season as a result of renovation work currently going on at the Bako Kontagora Memorial Stadium, their original home ground.

The Abubakar Bala-led side were initially expected to return to Minna for the 2016/2017 season but will have to wait a little longer as their home ground is not ready for use.

"Yes, Lokoja is our home for the 2016/2017 NPFL as our ancestral home stadium, Bako Kontagora Stadium is still being renovated," read a tweet on the club's official Twitter handle on Monday.

Niger Tornadoes finished in the 11th position in the NPFL last season.
