CAF CL: Plateau United To Face Etoile du Sahel In Kano
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has ruled that Plateau United's home matches in the 2018 CAF Champions League be moved to Kano from Jos.
The reigning NPFL champions will host Etoile Du Sahel on Sunday in the final round of this year’s CAF Champions League at the Sani Abacha Stadium.
Etoile won the first match 4-2 in Tunis and they are hoping to hold on to their advantage in the reverse ficture.
Plateau United played their previous home matches against Eding FC of Cameroon at their new stadium in Zaria road, Jos but the Tunisian side protested against the stadium faculties and unavailability of international airport in Jos.
“Our game against Etoile has been moved to Kano, it’s sad that our opponent protested against the Zaria road stadium and the situation of our airport,” a top official of Plateau United disclosed.
“We argued against their protest with CAF, we played our home game against Ending FC in Jos and the stadium facilities is much improved, we told CAF about the state airport which can accommodate any flight but seems CAF has decided to give them the advantage", he added.
Despite this development, Plateau United say they would not be distracted in their bid to to get to the group phase of the Champions League.
The Plateau United vs Etoile du Sahel game will now hold at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano on Sunday by 4pm Nigerian Time.
