When the news of Nigeria hosting the ICC Under-19 World Cup Africa Division 2 qualifier was announced, there were thrills and excitement among the cricket family in the country. As part of plans to ensure that the tournament becomes a success and further high profile tournaments are hosted in Nigeria, the Federation has engaged in massive facility upgrades and maintenance.


In preparation for the September tournament, the NCF has acquired a motorized roller for the twin turf wicket pitches in Abuja. The machine was delivered and received in the presence of the Secretary General and the Chief grounds’ man.

Further upgrades on the pitches will be reported as events continue to unfold.
