Nigeria will pass CAF’s stadium inspection test- Musa Amadu


The Nigerian football administrator said the country will be ready for the inspectors.

The Confederation of African Football, CAF, at a sitting of its Executive Committee in Morocco on Friday, announced that it will proceed with an inspection of all football stadia in Africa.

The announcement came amidst complaints that some pitches like Mbombela and Soccer City in South Africa were in very poor state during the just concluded African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Nigeria has reacted positively to the CAF announcement, saying the country’s stadia will meet the inspection standards.

The Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation, Musa Adamu, told PREMIUM TIMES that, “as far as I’m concerned CAF has done well. It’s a welcome development and I am very sure that we will pass CAF’s test.”

The Calabar Stadium in Cross River State is currently considered the standard stadium in Nigeria while the Abuja National Stadium is under renovation.

According to the recent CAF resolution, stadia which do not meet CAF standards and are unable to host club competitions or matches between national teams, will be removed from CAF’s list.

The Committee also added that CAF will provide each national association with the conditions to which stadium(s) must adhere to meet acceptable standards.
