Ahead of the Nigeria National League coaches training schedule for the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne, the facilities at the arena has been ranked as world class by the Director-General of the National Institute for sports (NIS) Professor Olawale Moronkola.
According to the the DG, “I’m impressed with the state of the arts facilities at the Remo Stars Stadium. The facilities are not only massive, but they are modern and compares to what obtains in most advanced countries. I have the opportunity of traveling to most countries and what I’ve seen here can compete with those we have seen in other parts of the world. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best privately owned sports complex and other individuals should emulate what Honourable Kunle Soname has done.”
