Enyimba To Return To Home Stadium In September

Two-time African champions Enyimba will return to their hunting ground, Aba International Stadium in September according to the Abia State Commissioner of Information, John Okiyi.

The Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) giants have been playing their home matches at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar for the better part of two years while reconstruction work is being carried out at the Aba International Stadium.

The Commissioner was speaking about the Stadium while he was inspecting the ongoing reconstruction work on Friday.

He also revealed that the contractor handling the project, Bayelsa-based Monimichelle Group, has completed 80% of the entire contract and 98% of the pitch reconstruction.

In his words via Premium Times, Mr. Okiyi said: “Of course, the team needs to train and practice on the new turf for at least four months before hosting their home matches at the facility.”

“But if the team can be made to play closed door, I can assure you that the pitch is ready for them because the contractor has completed his job by 98 per cent.

“The remaining two per cent is for him to mount the imported goalposts and nets.” He concluded.
