FCT football pitches ready before NNL, NNWL begin — Official

Musa Talle, Chairman, FCT Football Association, says the two football pitches in the territory will be in good shape before the Nigeria National League (NNL) and the Nigerian Nationwide League begin.

Talle said on Friday in Abuja that the FCT Acting Director of Sports had promised to give the season befitting football pitches.

“The two major fields that concern us are the Old Parade Ground Football pitch and the Area 3 football pitch.

Two weeks ago the committee members of board met with Dilichukwu Onyedinma, the Director of Sports, and she received the complaint and promised to take immediate action.

We are hopeful that in the next few weeks, especially the Old Parade Ground pitch will be put in the right shape,’’ Talle said.

“For the Area 3 pitch, we are looking at how we can provide accommodation for everybody, both the spectators and the players.

The way it is now, we seriously need to improve on the standard of the pitch so that we can host national and international football matches.’’ He added.
