09 November 2016, 11:40

Lagos - Tickets for Saturday’s World Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Algeria at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo will go for the sums of N1000 and N500 for covered seats and popular side respectively.

Speaking in Uyo on Tuesday, the Permanent Secretary in the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Youth and Sports, Mr. Nse Edem stated: “Given the importance of the match and the high expectation of Nigerians, the match tickets are certainly worth more than what they are being offered.

“However, His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has charged the Organizing Committee headed by the Secretary to the State Government, Sir Etekamba Umoren to make the tickets affordable so that we can have a full house to cheer the Super Eagles on the day.”
