Vandrezzer Football Club (VFC) have announced plans to relocate from Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State, to Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
A club statement said the move is in line with the Nigeria National League side’s “strategic business plan to further position the club as a global football brand, is the result of research into the impact of the club’s customer engagement, communication and media deployment strategy, which showed that more than 60% of VFC Followers are based in Lagos”.
Lagosians need more football teams who are ready to play at the very top. I am excited that @vandrezzerfc_ is relocating to Lagos from Ikot Ekpene. They play in the NNL.

“Moving to Lagos presents an opportunity for these fans and followers and other football fans to experience football the special VFC way and become a part of the ever-expanding global VFC family – the most followed club on social media in Nigeria and the 37th most followed club in Africa. It also gives VFC the opportunity to showcase its unique football platform to the business community in Lagos – the Economic heartbeat of the country – for partnerships towards business and brand development benefits for everyone,” the club said.
VFC said fans and well-wishers from whatever part of the country and the global business and sporting communities can continue to follow club activities through VFC TV and the club’s various media platforms on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
