CHAN 2014: Ghana, Nigeria match witnesses high ticket sales

The match comes up at 7:30 p.m. Nigerian time.

A few hours remains for the much anticipated semi-final clash between the home base Super Eagles and their Ghanaian counterparts at the African Nations Championships, CHAN, in South Africa.

The game is billed to kick-off at 8:30 p.m. local time, which is 7:30 p.m. Nigerian time.

A move around Bloefetimin, venue of the clash, shows a high expectation of the clash between the two West African teams.

Some of the Nigerian fans who spoke to our correspondent outside the Free States Stadium, venue of Wednesday’s encounter, explained how they travelled hours on the road to see the next generation of Eagles’ star.

“I actually arrived from Pretoria this morning, we have not been able to watch games in Cape town because it’s quite far,” Tunde Iyanda, a computer engineer, said on Wednesday morning.

Checks by PREMIUM TIMES showed that unlike earlier matches played at the Free States stadium where residents were literally begged to come and watch matches and handed free tickets, tickets for the Ghana/Nigeria are being sold; probably due to the high population of Ghanaians and Nigerians in South Africa.
