Nasarawa Utd relocate to Kafanchan

Nasarawa United have made arrangement to play their home games in Kafanchan in this season's Nigeria National League (NNL).

The original home of Nasarawa United - the Lafia stadium - will be under renovation according to chairman of the club, Barrister Isaac Danladi.

SuperSport.com has also been informed that the renovation of the Lafia stadium will last for three months.

"The contract has been awarded and very soon work will start on the (Lafia) stadium. We are hopeful that everything will be done in three months.

"After then Nasarawa United will come back to Lafia. The stadium will certainly be one of the best in the country by the time renovation work is concluded.

"We are eager to play before our home crowd because we know they will act as a motivating force for the players. I want to thank the governor who is working to see that Nasarawa United becomes a brand name in the country with the total renovation of the stadium in Lafia," said Danladi.

Nasarawa United were relegated from the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) in the 2008/2009 season when they finished 19th with 39 points.
