NNL lifts ban on Oluyemi Kayode Stadium

Posted : 22 March 2024

Football fans in Ekiti State will enjoy live action involving the state football team, Ekiti United, as the Nigeria National Football League Stadium Compliance Committee has lifted the ban placed on the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado Ekiti from hosting league matches.

Due to the poor state of the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium pitch, the NNL had previously taken Ekiti United FC's matches to Akure, where they played and lost to Madiba FC.

Following the unpleasant situation, the management of the Ekiti State Sports Council and Ekiti United Football Club intensified efforts to ensure the pitch regained its grass, as all matches were barred from taking place there since then.

The lifting of the ban was announced by the Secretary of Ekiti United FC, Ayodeji Olowolafe, late Thursday, after receiving an official letter from the NNL confirming the positive development.

With this development, Ekiti United FC will lock horns with Vandrezzer FC in one of the Week 15 league matches scheduled for this weekend.

Fans of the club, both home and abroad, are expecting Ekiti United to return to winning ways starting with this weekend's match.

After playing 14 league matches so far, Ekiti United has accumulated 13 points, although with a better goal difference than Vandrezzer FC, which also has 13 points.

The top 2 teams in each of the NNL conferences will qualify for the Super 8, while the bottom 3 will be relegated to the lower league.
