Ahead of Sunday’s potentially epic confrontation with Morocco’s military football club, the Association sportive des Forces armées royales, commonly called AS FAR, Nigeria’s CAF Confederation Cup flagbearers, Remo Stars have given their home ground, massive face lift.
Apart from the high stakes, the match represents the highest profiled football match to be played in the town that is noted for its production of eminent lawyers and politicians.
It will be first continental match to be played in the town. Apart from the club bracing up to finish the job that they began earlier in the week in Rabat, the CEO, Adedoyin Ogungbefun told Sports Village Square that the Remo Stars Stadium complex is receiving attention to enable spectators have an easy navigation on match days.
Already, new signposts are installed in strategic locations of the complex that harbours an hotel, housing facilities for a football academy, a big restaurant, and four standard training pitches.
Having one of the best maintained football pitches, the moderate main bowl is an allure to any first grade footballer.
Ogungbefun also spoke of the media tribune which has been upgraded and fixed with separate entrance. So also is the press conference room which has recently been completed.
Ahead of the match, Ogungbefun pointed out that the players are far from being complacent after the good show in North Africa which has been the international baptism for not most of the players, but also the club.
Sales of tickets for the match are being finalized and they will be graded ranging from regular to premium.
