Despite fulfilling all requirements to obtain visa, the South African Embassy in Nigeria has continued to frustrate every effort of Rivers United.

Rivers United is due to play Celtic Football Club in the first leg, first round of CAF Confederation Cup in Bloemfontein, South Africa on Wednesday, December 23, 2020.

The only available flight to South Africa is on Friday 18th December, 2020.

Unfolding events point to the fact that Rivers United may not make the trip, owing to combined issues of non-issuance of visa and availability of flight later than Friday.

Officials of Rivers United have frequented the South African embassy in Abuja, pleading and begging for visas to be issued urgently.

Every condition laid before Rivers United officials have been met with cogent and verifiable documents, necessary for a such trip.

An official of the team has been in Abuja since December 7, a day after Rivers United's clash with Futuro Kings of Equatorial Guinea in the preliminary round of the Confederation Cup.

Whilst Rivers United officials are still pulling all strings to ensure urgent issuance of the visas, there are fears it may be futile.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) have been notified of the unfolding scenario, hence the need to also inform Nigerians.

The Nigerian business magnate, and owner of Go Round FC, formerly in the Nigeria Premier league, Felix Obuah, in a statement in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, promised to pay Rivers United Two Million Naira (N2,000,000) for a win, One Million Naira (N1,000,000) for a draw and another Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N200,000) for each goal they score against the Siwelele.

Rivers United will play Bloemfontein Celtic in the CAF Confederation Cup first round first leg on Wednesday at the Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium, kick-off is 6pm local time (5pm Nigeria time).

Will the game be on TV? With a South African team playing, perhaps it will be shown on SuperSports?
