Super Eagles’ London Match Tickets On Sale



By Kunle Solaja


Tickets for the two friendly matches Nigeria’s Super Eagles will play later this month are already out on sale.

The media department of the Nigeria Football Federation announced that the tickets went up on sale on Wednesday and are available for £10 for adults and £5 for juniors.

The tickets are to be purchased on line and through telephone contacts in the UK.


The NFF announced that its official match agent, Jairo Pachon of Eurodata Sport had confirmed the details of the matches to be played against Senegal on March 23 and Burkina Faso on March 27.

Both matches will hold at The Hive Stadium, the home ground of Barnet Football Club, a League Two English side.

The Super Eagles who are on a five-match winning streak look forward to the matches to improve their current FIFA rating which is 41, 10 places below Senegal’s and three behind that of Burkina Faso.

“We believe that the two teams, Senegal and Burkina Faso, who also participated at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon, will provide the Super Eagles with quality preparation for the remaining matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series, and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign starting in June,” a press release from NFF and Eurodata Sport declared.
