The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is on a collision course with their counterparts in Ghana over the allocation of tickets for their two legged World Cup qualifiers play-off games
Ahead of the first leg which will take place in
Ghana on the 25th of this month, the NFF
have demanded for 10,000 tickets to be
distributed to fans of the Nigerian team, who
will be at the stadium.
This much was made known by Ghanaian
journalist Nuhu Abdul on Twitter. He further
said the stadium where the game will take
place can only carry a maximum of 15,000
“The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has
requested for 10,000 tickets from the Ghana
Sports Minstry ahead of the 2022 World
Cup play-off 1st Leg in Cape Coast on March.
Meanwhile the Cape Coast Stadium takes
15,000 people maximum during matches”, he
posted on Twitter.
His statement means a disagreement
between the football federation of both
countries is brewing considering that Nigeria
will host Ghana in Abuja, four days after the
game in Cape Coast.
The return leg will be played at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Tuesday, 29th March.
The winner over two legs will earn one of Africa’s five tickets to the 22nd FIFA World Cup finals, scheduled for 14th November – 18th December this year in Qatar.
