CAF has approved the newly renovated Enyimba International Stadium Aba for Wednesday’s Confederation Cup Group C encounter between Enyimba and Congo’s CARA Brazzaville, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The ground which has been under renovation for the past three years was inspected by CAF officials last week.
Two-time African champions, Enyimba have played their four previous home games in the competition this year at the UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar and Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.
“Finally, the hard work pays off. The @EnyimbaFC stadium has gotten approval from CAF to host CARA Brazaville on Wednesday and the rest of the club’s #TotalCAFCC matches. Back home for good now,” reads a tweet on the twitter handle of Enyimba’s media officer, Farriel Allaputa on Monday morning.
The Peoples Elephant occupy second position in Group C and need to beat CARA Brazzaville to be guaranteed of a place in the quater-final.
The Aba giants secured a 1-0 away win against Djoliba of Mali in their last game in the competition.
They are looking to become the first Nigerian club to win the CAF Confederation Cup.
