When Lobi Stars resume their quest for the CAF Champions League, they will truly be at home in their domestic fixtures. So far, they have had to play their home matches away from their Makurdi home.
The home matches have been played in Enugu for logistics reasons. While commending the club’s efforts so far in the continent, the General Secretary of the NFF, Dr, Mohammed Sanusi remarked that he believes the opportunity now presented to Lobi Stars to play in front of their home fans, following the completion of the runway of the Makurdi Airport, will invigorate the players to even better performance in subsequent matches.
According to him, “Lobi Stars put up a commendable performance in Abidjan against ASEC Mimosas though they lost by the odd goal.
“Now, they must lift their morale to pick the three points against Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco in order to boost their chances of a place in the quarter finals.”
“Certainly, playing in front of their home fans will be bigger boost for the Lobi Stars. I have confidence that they will go all the way in the competition.
The Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi, is the home ground for the Benue State club side.
