CAF confirms Uyo Stadium for Nigeria vs South Africa gameBy Ifreke Inyang on October 31, 2014@dailypostngr
The Confederation of African Football (CAF), have confirmed that the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and South Africa, will be played at the new Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo.
A representative of the footbal body, was in Nigeria to conduct a tour of the facilities at the recently completed stadium and has given it a pass mark.
CAF delegated Mr. Fred Crentsil, the vice-president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), to inspect the facility and he left impressed.
“You guys have a wonderful facility here. It is one of the best I have seen anywhere around Africa and elsewhere. It is of the same standard and mould as Soccer City [in Johannesburg albeit] with a lower capacity,” Crentsil said in Uyo on Thursday.
“I am particularly amazed that there are provisions for the physically –challenged persons. Everything is taken care of here. I am hugely impressed.”
The match is scheduled for November 19
