2022 World Cup playoff: Nigeria latest request scares Ghana

According to our report, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has requested 10,000 tickets for the 2022 World Cup playoff in Ghana later this month, despite the fact that the Cape Coast Stadium site can only hold 15,000 spectators.

Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sports has received a letter from their Nigerian colleagues demanding match tickets for the first-leg encounter in Cape Coast, according to sources.

The stadium, which is located in Ghana’s Central Region, has a capacity of 15,000 people, but the NFF has requested more than half of that capacity.

The stadium, which is located in Ghana’s Central Region, has a capacity of 15,000 people, but the NFF has requested more than half of that capacity.

This means that the Nigerian government aims to overwhelm even the home team supporters 4:1 before the second leg, which will determine which side advances to the global competition, is played in Abuja.

With sponsors and other partners likely to grab a portion of the tickets, it will be difficult for the host club, let alone the visiting squad, to secure half of the seats available.

FIFA regulations, on the other hand, require that the visiting team be granted a significant share of the tickets, but not half of them.

Ghana will host Nigeria at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on March 25, 2022, before flying to Abuja on March 29 for the second leg at the Mashood Abiola Stadium.

During the World Cup qualifications, the Black Stars played at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
