The team would stay at the hotel during the World Cup.
The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the selection of Vitoria Hotel Concept Campinas as the Team Base Camp Hotel of the Super Eagles for next year’s FIFA World Cup, Brazil 2014.
The Super Eagles’ Head Coach, Stephen Keshi; NFF’s Director of Marketing, Adama Idris; Assistant Director (Media), Ademola Olajire and Eagles’ Team Administrator, Enebi Achor inspected the facility the day after the Final Draw of the 2014 FIFA World Cup was held in Costa do Sauipe, off Salvador.
Located in Campinas, a city 70 minutes’ drive from the Sao Paulo International Airport, Vitoria Hotel Concept Campinas is said to be an ideal facility that would help the Super Eagles concentrate on the business of aiming for a major impact at the FIFA World Cupfinals, said Keshi.
“I love this place. It is good for our team and we will be able to achieve full concentration,” Keshi said. “It is also good that there is an airport in Campinas that serves domestic flights, so we don’t have to travel to Sao Paulo to fly to our different venues,” he said.
The Team Base Camp Hotel is usually the base of every team at the FIFA World Cup finals, from where it travels to venues to honour its fixtures, during which it stays at Venue-Specific Team Hotel.
The African champions would be based in Campinas and travel to Curitiba to play Iran; to Cuiaba to play Bosnia-Herzegovina; and to Porto Alegre to play Argentina. Only Cuiaba is more than an hour’s flight from Campinas.
