President of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) Amaju Pinnick has revealed that the Super Eagles will play their home game against South Africa at the newly built ultra modern stadium in Uyo,Akwa Ibom State.

The 30,000 capacity stadium is a new state of the art stadium constructed by the Akwa Ibom state government.

Being a new stadium and having all the facilities still intact,it was not difficult for the NFF to settle for Uyo as the next venue to host Nigeria’s home game.

The pitch is natural grass,with good drainage system in the advent of a heavy downpour.

Nigeria will host the Bafana Bafana in Nigeria next month and then travel away to Brazzaville to play Congo.

Being the first match that will take place in Uyo,it is expected that the crowd for the game will be a sell-out.
