Ahead of Wednesday’s CAF Confederations Cup Group C encounter between Nigeria’s sole representative, Enyimba Intl and Congo’s CARA Brazzaville, CAF has approved the newly renovated Enyimba International Stadium in Aba.
Enyimba’s Media Officer Farriel Allaputa confirmed this in a tweet on Monday morning
“Finally, the hard work pays off. The @EnyimbaFC stadium has
gotten approval from CAF to host CARA Brazaville on
Wednesday and the rest of the club’s #TotalCAFCC matches.
Back home for good now,”
Two-time African champions, Enyimba have played their four previous home games in the competition this year at the UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar and Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.
The ground which has been under renovation for the past three years was inspected by CAF officials last week.
The Peoples Elephant occupy second position in Group C and need to beat CARA Brazzaville to be guaranteed of a place in the quater-final and continue their bid at becoming the first Nigerian side to win the Confederations Cup.
