Abuja - Warri Wolves, the Confederations Cup representatives, appealed to fans to come up in numbers to offer the team support in their match against Ethiopian side Dedebit SC.

The encounter is scheduled for Warri City Stadium on Saturday.

“We will continue to appeal to our fans to come out in thousands to watch this classical match. In Ethiopia, we have been told that we will meet not less than 35 000 fans so if we can get about 20,000 fans here, it will go a long way in motivating the players for a good victory,” Wolves Media Manager, Etu Moses, said.

A 24 man team of 18 players and six officials of Dedebit SC are already in Warri for the encounter.

As for the Match Officials, they arrived on time so they flew straight to Warri and we thank God for their safe arrival. With their arrival, all is now set for the match and we are praying for a good weather on Saturday,” Moses said.
