Nigeria vs Lesotho: CAF approves 7,200 fans to watch AFCON qualifier in Lagos

The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has approved only 7,200 fans, to watch the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and Lesotho.

The match will be played at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos on March 30, 2021.

CAF has however warned that COVID-19 protocols must be adhered to.

“The Super Eagles will be returning to Lagos for the first time in 20 years and we felt it would be unfair to play in an empty stadium hence we applied to CAF to allow us to admit fans into the Teslim Balogun Stadium for our game against Lesotho later this month.

“Fortunately for us, CAF obliged by allowing the admittance of 30 percent of the stadium’s total capacity to watch the game. So we expect about 7,200 fans to be at the stadium to cheer the Super Eagles to victory on March 30. The total seating capacity of the Teslim Balogun Stadium is 24,000 and its 30 percent will be 7,200, explained NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire in a post on social media.
