17 June 2015, 14:10

Lagos - Seven clubs have complied with the directive by the League Management Company (LMC) to find alternate venues for their league games due to the bad playing surfaces at their respective home grounds.

Akwa United, FC Taraba, Wikki Tourists, El-Kanemi Warriors and FC Ifeanyiubah have all relocated to alternate venues, pending when their stadiums will be deemed ready to host games in the Nigerian top flight.

The other two teams to have found alternate grounds are Abia Warriors of Umuahia and Heartland FC of Owerri.

Abia and Heartland will both play at the Aba Township Stadium, home ground of former league champions, Enyimba.
