Tickets for Saturday’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Nigeria and Chad will go on sale in selected outlets in Kaduna on Thursday, the Nigeria Football Federation has announced through its website.
Saturday’s match will be the first match by the Super Eagles on the natural turf of Ahmadu Bello Stadium since a 4-0 international friendly victory over the Stallions of Burkina Faso on September 10, 2013.
The announcement adds that tickets into the VIP stand at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium for Saturday’s match will cost N2,000, with the grandstand to go for N500 and the popular area to be sold for N300 only.
The Super Eagles defeated Zambia 2-0 in a friendly match also in Kaduna on November 15, 2011, Stephen Keshi’s second match in charge of the squad after taking charge of the team on 2nd November, 2011 in his first stint.
Also, the Super Eagles B walloped their Ivorian counterparts 4-1 in Kaduna in July 2013, prior to qualifying for the African Nations Championship for the first time.
Meanwhile, all the players required by Keshi to prosecute the match in Kaduna are now in camp, with the arrival of China-based Aaron Samuel. Samuel, who scored in the 2015 Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Sudan (in Abuja) and Congo-Brazzaville(in Pointe Noire), was part of Sunday morning's training session.
