Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium

The Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Benin City, Nigeria. Originally known as Ogbe Stadium, it is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Bendel Insurance FC. The stadium has a capacity of 20,000 people.

It is named after the two-time Governor of the old Bendel State, Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia. In Feb. 2009, the stadium was banned by the National League for having an unsafe, below-standard playing surface.

Since comrade Adams Oshiomhole assumed office as Governor in 2008 there have been significant changes in the stadium, like new FIFA approved turf playing pitch and so many others. Image Map
