Nigeria National League (NNL) has given clubs participating in the 2020/2021 season to submit to the Secretariat of the league body their preferred venues for home matches on or before September 23, 2020.
Such home grounds the NNL asserted must be safe and appropriate and should meet the facility requirements, as stipulated in the NNL rule books.
Chief Operating Officer (CEO) of the league, Emmanuel Adesanya, said the venue for the competitive league games must be different from training pitches and that both shall be inspected before the commencement of the new season.
The stadia assessment that will follow is to ascertain compliance and level of readiness to host the NNL 2021 League matches.
Speaking further, Adesanya said clubs are mandated to provide functional electronic score boards in their home grounds and in the absence of such, a manual scoreboard with a black background (Minimum size of 8×5 meters) should be in place.
“Standard Substitution board with a minimum measurement of 14 inches x 10 inches. Fortified Perimeter fencing of at least 2 meters in height, functional dressing rooms for teams and match officials”.
Adesanya warned that the NNL may consider an alternative venue for stadium(s) that fall short of the requirements stipulated above.
