Sports No Gate Fee: Abuja Stadium Thrown Open For Nigeria Vs Sudan Clash

✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
In a bid to lure fans to come and cheer the Super Eagles in their match against Sudan today,the gates have been thrown open for fans who want to watch the national team at the Abuja national stadium.

Fans will not pay any gate fee,as the sports ministry have mandated for fans to be granted free access to come and watch the game.

Nigeria is in a delicate situation at the moment and needs to win all their next three games if they are to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations.

At the moment,Nigeria lies bottom of group A and in danger of missing out of the Nations Cup tournament unless they turn around their fortunes.

"Nigerians have the right to be angry after seeing the Eagles losing the game against Sudan," said the sports minister Tammy Danagogo.

"But having expressed their displeasure at the Eagles showing, the fans must come out to support the team because we still have the chance to qualify.

"And these boys have the capacity to win. If we as government do our part, the coaches do their part and the players do their's, then the fans must do their part and that is the support the team needs.

"That is why we have decided to throw the gates open for everyone to come and watch."

Even when the Super Eagles are in top form,the Abuja Stadium has a penchant of not attracting a full house for Nigeria's matches,and the apathy is expected to continue following the recent poor form of the team.
