The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA has given approval to Nigeria’s request to have 60,000 spectators for the 2022 World Cup playoff second leg tie against Ghana.
The Super Eagles will take on the Black Stars for bragging rights, supremacy, and qualification to the World Cup at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) made requested to have 60,000 people at the stadium for the crucial and Highly-anticipated game and was promptly granted by CAF.
CAF initially approved 30,000 fans for the highly anticipated encounter but with the stakes being much higher, the NFF requested for 30,000 more.
Nigeria held Ghana to a highly entertaining goalless stalemate at the charged Kumasi atmosphere at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium last Friday.
The last time the Black Stars visited Nigeria in a World Cup qualification fixture, they suffered a 3-0 loss to the Super Eagles at the Port Harcourt stadium.
The winner over the two legs will book their place at the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
