A New Home Ground For The Super Eagles- Nigerian Football Federation


Following poor results recorded by the Super Eagles at the magnificent Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF may have decided against the future use of the ground as Eagles home ground.


The recent 2-0 home loss to the South African team, Bafana Bafana is said to be the final straw that has given the boost to the argument that the team be moved out of Uyo and the World Cup 2018 qualifier between Nigeria and Cameroon later in the year could be moved from the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

Super Eagles have won just two games at the magnificent Godswill Akpabio Stadium. Although there are reports that the stadium is under a spell, it was gathered that, the reason for moving the World Cup 2018 qualifier against Cameroon from the stadium was purely on logistics.

The choice of Port Harcourt as the home ground of the Eagles is yet to be fully agreed as renovation works at the stadium is yet to be completed, so Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna and the National Stadium in Abuja have been placed on standby.
