Delta Govt Raises Prices Of Match Tickets For Seychelles, Egypt Games

Prices of tickets for Super Eagles upcoming games against Seychelles and and Egypt have been increased by the Delta State Government, Completesports.com reports.

The Commissioner for Information, Patrick Ukah, who announced this decision at a news conference in Asaba on Wednesday said the new rates were introduced to enhance crowd management.

Ukah said the crowd of football fans who thronged the stadium to watch matches was always huge and there was a need to effectively control the situation.

“The Stephen Keshi Stadium will now have new gate fees. The VIP box is now N10,000 with lots of refreshment and entertainment for ticket-holders,”Ukah stated.

“The covered stand will now go for N3,000, while the popular stand still remains N1,000.

Before the new rates, the VIP stand was usually free for those who were allowed in with invitation cards.

These were usually the State Governor and his entourage, as well as other dignitaries as may be determined by the match hosts.

The covered stand used to go for N2,000.00.

The Super Eagles who are already through to Egypt 2019 will host the Pirates of Seychelles in their dead rubber clash at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Friday.

They will also take on the Pharaohs of Egypt in a friendly encounter at the same venue on Tuesday.

  • The sad thing is they will not use the money to improve the station.

    No score board, the floodlights collapse, the water tower collapse….

  • Since Pinnick and the NFF insist on using the Asaba stadium, I hope they have upgraded the camera coverage and the pitch is standard now? Not the eyesore and mud fight we all had to endure in the last friendly on the pitch against Uganda.

    Aerial and side view angles must be installed for those of us viewing on TV please. Pinnick is really going to get it from people like me if the state of the stadium remains the same as the last time by tomorrow, pitch and camera-wise. It seems the NFF can’t decide yet on the real SE homeground.

    Pinnick is doing this for political reasons. He knows that the pitch is substandard and far below other African stadiums. The best pitch out there in Nigeria is in Uyo. Pinnick is rewarding the Delta Governor for the support he received from him during his fight with the (out-going) pray he goes away, sport minister.
    Now, the only way the U23 Nigeria can beat Libya is to play that return match in a good turf in Uyo. That will enable the foreign based players expressed themselves more freely.
