The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday disclosed why the country’s national teams play games outside of the Abuja National Stadium.

NFF said it had to play most games outside the nation capital due to the lack of standard and good infrastructure at the stadium.

The NFF Secretary-General, Mohammed Sanusi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the national stadium currently lacks the necessary facilities for the teams to play conveniently.

The secretary also said that some states had indicated their interest in hosting the national teams.

“Some of these states indicated their interest in hosting the teams and that is why we went there. The Abuja National Stadium is under renovation and so there is no facility for us to play our matches here.

“We have our technical centre here, but there are no dressing rooms. So we are making efforts to see if the dressing rooms can be provided,” Sanusi said

Sanusi, however, added that the football house was planning to take the matches of the teams across the country, so that Nigerians can watch their national teams play live.
