Warri Wolves’ opponents, AC Leopards FC of Congo Brazzaville, will arrive Nigeria Thursday for the second leg of the CAF Confederations Cup game which will take place this Saturday at the Warri City Stadium in Delta State.
According to a statement signed by the media manager of the Warri based Club, Etu Moses, the Congo team, which defeated Wolves by three goals in the first leg, did not reveal much about their travelling arrangement, hence the number of people coming could not be ascertained.
Wolves said regardless, the host team have made arranged to convey them from Port Harcourt to Warri on arrival.
“They have informed us that they will be coming in on Thursday via Port Harcourt but we don’t know the number of people coming. We have made available vehicles to convey them to Warri as soon as they land in the Garden City,” Etu said.
Meanwhile, the management of the Warri-based team has urged the fans coming to watch to match to adorn blue clothing which will allow them to gain access to the stadium free of charge.
According to Etu, the Club wants to make the atmosphere quite different from what they have been used to and have decided that the blue shirt will serve as match ticket.
“We are trying to change the orientation of the fans and for this match, if you come with your blue shirt, you will be allowed to watch the match free and so we are appealing to our fans to get a blue T-Shirt and cheer the boys as they are ready to do their country proud,” he said.
Wolves lost 3-0 away to Ac Leopard during the first leg and now need to be at their very best to upturn the huge deficit.
