Tit-Bits about Aisha Buhari Cup’s Mobolaji Stadium

The Mobolaji Johnson Arena is a multi-purpose stadium in Onikan, Lagos. It is currently used for football matches and it is the home stadium of various Lagos teams

The stadium has a capacity of 10,000 people and is the oldest in Nigeria.

The original stadium was built in 1930 and six years later named after King George V.

Between 1963 and 1973, it became known as the Lagos City Stadium

The current Mobolaji stadium was however renovated and reopened for football and cultural activities in the 1980s.

In March 2008, the stadium was banned for use for the rest of the season by the Nigeria Football League when a pitch invasion injured many people there during a game between Warri Wolves and First Bank after a goalless draw.
