The moribund Olubadan Stadium is now wearing new look ahead of the commencement of Ibadan Football Association League 2019 season schedule for Saturday 25th this month.
A trip to the stadium reveals massive development taking place all at the same time after the monumental edifice had been shut down from football action for the almost five years by the Oyo FA. Right from outside, the wall fence is being painted, while the surrounding weeds were also being cleared by gardeners.
Pipes were being laid around the pitch for continuous and steady wetting of d newly re-grassed football pitch. The Chairman of the newly constituted board for the oldest football association in Nigeria, Barr Biodun Alli in a chat with the Sporting press in Ibadan promised the lovers of grassroots football better days.
Alli in his remarks enjoined the soccer lovers in the town to rally the new IFA board so that the once ever productive community league can be revived together.”We have worked so much to restore Olubadan Stadium and the most revered IFA league back”, the new IFA boss noted.
Other members of the IFA Akintola Idowu, Dauda Ladipo, Alhaja Romoke Badmos and Folorunsho Oyelakin.
