Chairman of Enyimba International FC, Felix Anyansi-Agwu has said he is confident of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) approval of the newly transformed Aba Township Stadium for their final home game in the CAF Confederations Cup, AOIFootball.com reports.
Enyimba take on Congolese side CARA Brazzaville next week, and Anyansi, who spoke after the CAF inspection team took a tour around the stadium, said afterwards that the stadium was 100% ready for its first official game after three years.
“The stadium has already been inspected by the team from CAF. They went round the entire complex to inspect it, so it’s left for them to send their report to CAF, while we await what the final decision will be.
“But personally, in my own opinion I would say I’m very positive they will grant our request to play CARA here in front of our lovely fans and bring smiles back to the people of Aba and Nigerians generally,” Anyansi said.
Two-time African champions Enyimba will host CARA Brazzaville in a must-win clash on the 28th of September to determine who picks one of two quarterfinal tickets in the group.
