Brazilian team, Guarani Futebol Clube, a Serie C club is currently in the hunt for an alternative ground as its home ground will be temporarily taken over by the Super Eagles throughout their stay in Brazil during the 2014 World Cup.
The Nigeria Federation after holding consultations with Super Eagles chief coach Stephen Keshi has selected Vitoria Hotel Concept Campinas as the Team Base Camp Hotel of the Super Eagles during the Mundial.
Throughout their stay in Brazil, the Super Eagles will train at Estádio Brinco de Ouro, home ground of the Serie C club.
Although there will be no league matches in Brazil during the World Cup, the club have to give way for renovation work on the facility. A statement from the club said, “the stadium has to undergo some improvements and will be inactive as from March next year.”
Guarani FC must find a temporary ground for the beginning of next season and the board is considering Jaguariuna, Hortolandia and Paulinia , informs globoesporte.globo.com.
“Unfortunately we do not use the Brinco de Ouro. It was not something we’d like, but we have to give for a selection.
“I hope the fans can support the team anywhere,”said manager of Guarani, Marcio Fernandes.
To meet Fifa standards, there will be modifications to the pitch, press room and dressing rooms.
The Portugal National Team will also be camped in Campinas.
