CAF bans Teslim Balogun Stadium over lack of proper Medical Equipment, Poor Playing Surface


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.
