Niger Tornadoes Football Club Minna has adopted Kwara Sports Complex in Ilorin for the Club’s home matches.
According to a Press Statement issued by the club’s Chairman Hon. Adamu Aliyu and made available to the media department of the team, disclosed that the choice of Ilorin became necessary as a result of recent security challenges on the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, which has become a recurring decimal and major source of concern among commuters and prompted the swift change of the earlier proposed Ahmadu Bello Stadium Kaduna as a home venue.
The safety and wellbeing of players is a primary responsibility upon us as management, hence the decision to adopt Kwara Sports Complex Ilorin as ‘temporary’ home ground after an agreement was reached between the FAs of Niger & Kwara State following LMC’s approval, pending the renovation of Bako Kontagora Stadium Minna.
It could be recalled that the 2021/2022 NPFL season is billed to commence on the 17th of December and has received the blessings of all football stakeholders.
Meanwhile, Niger Tornadoes shall confront Plateau United of Jos in Ilorin for the season curtain-raiser.
