Weather condition may force a postponement of the CAF Confederation Cup tie of Rivers United and Uganda’s Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.
Sports Village Square gathered from Sammy Wejinya, the media officer of Rivers United, that it had been raining heavily in Port Harcourt, the venue of the match.
Speaking on Top Sport programme on Top Radio, Wejinya said the heavy rainfall which started early in the morning in almost all coastal regions of Nigeria, had left the pitch of Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt, heavily flooded.
“Except there is a dramatic change of the situation, the match may be shifted”, remarked Wejinya.
With all teams in the group winning its home match, and with the Rivers United versus KCCA scheduled to come earlier than that of Tunisia’s Club Africain versus FUS of Morocco match, Rivers United would have taken a momentary lead of the group should it win.
The other Group A match is scheduled to come few hours after that of Rivers United.
