    Our beautiful stadium..Wish we return to playing in this ultra modern stadium sooner than later..
    Meanwhile,a slim victory isn’t enough at home against a north African side notorious for its win at all cost at home.
    Anyways good luck Akwa United !

    @Greenturf… are you looking at the patches of brown streaking the whole breath of that turf at all? Some people still think the playing turf is in Super condition… what remains is just the magnificence of the structure… it’s patchy brown bumpy turf now. We can’t maintain a good stadium anywhere… Our rotten culture of negligence won’t appropriate the groundsmen good welfare to do a dedicated job… Shame on Nigeria from North to South!
