Finally, somebody is using his brain.

Let's hope they can get the Uyo pitch ready. Its just over 2 weeks away.

NFF to move Eagles-Benin match to Uyo

October 29, 2019 in News Update, Sports

Ejiro Femi-Babafemi

THE Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may have finally settled for the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom capital to hold the first leg qualifying match between the Super Eagles and their Beninese counterparts on November 13.

Sources close to the NFF’s Glass House in Abuja had last week revealed that the Stephen n Keshi Stadium in Asaba was highly favoured to host the match ahead of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin and Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

But the situation of things got clearer regarding the match venue after invitations were reportedly sent out to the respective state Football Association chairmen and secretaries notifying them of the impending NFF congress slated for the same November 13 in Uyo.

“That means Asaba is no longer in the picture with the latest information,” said a source.

The congress is expected to hold at 9 am, according to the source, after which members would head for the stadium to watch the match.

The choice of Uyo if its stands would be a welcomed development to the players who were not rightly disposed to the condition of the pitch playing in Asaba.

The Uyo pitch is ready. I saw a picture of the pitch yesterday. It's in pristine condition.

I mean it sounds like an intimidation tactics, taking foreigners away from Lagos, Abuja and into what would amount to a jungle for a match. Not sure why CAF allows such.

Asaba is no more a jungle, than Illorin, ile Ife , or any other city not in Lagos or Abuja. If anything it’s probably more modern than most.

100% correct, the pitch is a mess and the Stadium is undersized for International football matches,I don’t know about NPL standards but that’s the kind of stadium that schools rent out for sports day on short notice in the UK!

We should limit our international matches to:

Uyo
Abuja (Subject to the signing of a maintenance contract and the refurbishment of the stadium)
Lagos (Subject to the National Stadium being sold to the Lagos State government who then upgrade it significantly)

None of our other stadia is up to scratch. However, I see a few governors getting in on the act soon too.

Good move if true.

The stadium is just much better. What it has over the Abuja stadium is a better atmosphere with more fans. Asaba has the fans too but the stadium is below par.

How do you know of such? Have you been to all other stadiums?

Asaba is a village? Maybe you don't know what a village looks like, or is
