Mixed reactions trail Eagles ticket price

14 November 2013, 19:37Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigerians are beginning to react to the ticket price hike for the 2014 FIFA World Cup playoff between the Super Eagles and Walya Antelopes.

The game is scheduled for the UJ Esuene stadium in Calabar on Saturday.

Organisers announced that the tickets will be sold between N1 000 and N6 000, a development that has drawn condemnation as well as compliments.

Readers of News24 Nigeria on Facebook expressed their minds after reading the story of ticket price hike.

Adams Abel: It's too high. Bring it down to between 1 00 to 5 00 naira.

Nick Audu Kogi: It is okay. Let’s value what we have.

Lanre Ilori: They should subsidize this from the SURE -P fund.

Chung David: It's good price. How much do we pay to watch outside?

Eze-ebinafo Kofiniaja M: okocha coming back to play?

Oni Olumide Maxwell: if they reduced the fee, people will turn-up and motivate the players

The Nigeria Football Federation may need to reduce the price, as the Super Eagles need maximum support at the stadium.

There are reports that 1 000 Ethiopian fans will be at the stadium on Saturday to back their team.
