Nigeria And Sierra Leone Clash Set For Behind Closed Doors


The Afcon qualifiers clash between Nigeria and Sierra Leone scheduled to hold at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin will be played behind close doors.

It was initially thought that there will be 7000 supporters in the stadium, but the Ministry of Sports has denied it.

According to the Presidential Task-Force on Covid-19.

“The ministry wishes to bring to your attention that in compliance with the condition of no gathering agreed upon by the ministry and the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 before the Federal Government opened up football and contact sports, the match between Nigeria and Sierra Leone will not have any audience and no gathering save for players, match officials and government officials from both countries”.

Testing must be conducted on all of them prior to the match,” a letter to Edo State deputy Governor Philip Shuaibu read in part”.

The Super Eagles are on top of the Group L of the qualifiers with six points from two games.

The match is slated to hold on Friday, November 13, 2020 at the newly a refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.
