THE chairman of Ibadan Football Association (IFA) Mr Rotimi Alli, disclosed on Tuesday that the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan would be allowed to use Olubadan Stadium as home ground for its National League matches if the need arises.
He made the disclosure while fielding questions from sports writers at the Post-Lockdown Press Conference of the Association on Tuesday.
Describing the 3SC as an institution and a Yoruba nation club side, Alli stated that if the club found the issue of home ground for its matches to be knotty, IFA was ready to assist based on the cordial relationship between the two bodies spanning several decades.
He spoke further that all the club officials needed was to approach IFA so they could agree on what structures to put in place to meet the requirements and standard of the NNL organizers.
He pointed out that he had contacted some friends who could donate a new score-board and also discussed constructing perimeter fence around the pitch with his board members.
The NNL had asked teams in the League to forward names of the stadium they intend to use for their home matches.
Lekan Salami Stadium which serve as 3SC home ground is currently undergoing renovations.
While ruling out pecuniary gains for the association, he noted that he had always offered help to the club by way of identifying quality players from IFA League who have been signed by the Oluyole Warriors.
He stressed that he only informed the coaches about such players and this had paid off for both 3SC and the other teams.
The IFA chairman revealed further that no fewer than 12 players from IFA League 2019 have been signed by bigger clubs within and outside the country.
