A FIFA/CAF delegation has hailed the standard of facilities at the Nest of Champions, Uyo following their inspection of the facility as one of the possible venues for the CAF Super League.

Officially known as the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, the Nest of Champions was today inspected by a CAF delegation led by Mr Sidat. The inspection team was led round the facility by Senior Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State governor Mr Udom Emmanuel, Elder Paul Bassey, in the company of prominent sport stakeholders in the state.

As first reported by journalist Mfon Patrick, Mr. Sidat who is CAF head of professional football expressed satisfaction at the standard of facilities his team inspected ahead of the proposed CAF Super League billed to take kick off in August.

Mr Sidat said “As head of professional football/ stadium inspection at CAF, I must say that we are surprised in a positive way and we are happy to see A-standard facilities in this part of Nigeria. The Ibom Air flight that brought us from Abuja to Uyo was wonderful, the road network is superb and we enjoyed our drive through the town which looks green with some great vegetation.

” The stadium and the three hotels we have visited are up to the standard we want, so congratulations to the local authority here. As part of the inspection ahead of the CAF Super League, we have visited many countries in the continent but I can say that we are satisfied with what we have seen here in Uyo and I can say authoritatively that the standard of this stadium is good enough for any type of football match.

” We want to congratulate the state government, the stadium management for maintaining this facility. Nigeria and Africa should be proud of this stadium.”
