Osun State Government Closes Down Osogbo Township Stadium in Preparation for Second Stanza of NNL.

Osun State Government has issued a directive for the closure of the Main Bowl of Osogbo Township Stadium barring all activities in order to put the turf in good shape before the resumption of the second half of Nigeria National League, NNL season.

The decision was unanimously agreed upon today at a meeting between the Government and the stakeholders.

The Deputy Governor who also doubles as the Commissioner for Sports, Prince Kola Adewusi who was represented by the Director of Sports, Coaching and Training Osun State Sports Council, Mr Ademola Daini made it known that over usage of the field is hindering the growth of the grass.
