Wolves To Notify NPL On Warri Stadium

The management of Warri Wolves has disclosed that it would write officially to the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) on the present condition of its home ground, the Warri Township Stadium.
General Manager, Media of Warri Wolves, Timi Ebikagboro, told that the club’s home ground had been shut down for several weeks after the last inspection of FIFA for the just-concluded Under-17 World Cup.
Ebikagboro further disclosed that repair has been ongoing on the playing surface of the stadium in Warri to ensure that the turf meets international standard as required by FIFA’s inspection team.
He hinted that the stadium should be ready between January and February for use by the Globacom Premier League side, which would prompt an official notification of change in venue from the club management to the NPL.
“For now, Warri Wolves are not using the (Warri Township) stadium because it is under renovation. Remember that the last time FIFA inspected the stadium for the Under-17 World Cup, it complained about the surface. But that is being taken care of now and hopefully by January or February the stadium should be ready for use,” he explained to
At the same time, Warri Wolves is planning to play its CAF Confederation Cup matches at the Warri Township Stadium next year, according to Ebikagboro.
