The place of fans usually referred to as the 12th men in football games cannot be underestimated.

But a severed deep in form would discourage the supporters from investing in watching live matches at the stadium.

It's based on these logistics that the media department of Rivers United football club recently embarked on a road show as part of activities to drum up support for the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club.

The road show was also aimed at selling the philosophy, ideology and objectives of the football club to the people of Rivers State as well as those resident/doing business in the vicinity.

Elekahia, Stadium Road, Aba Road, Olu Obasanjo Road and the famous Ikoku market were some of the areas of Port Harcourt visited by the team.

Some of the inhabitants of the city, who spoke to the media team during the show, expressed delight at the project while also revealing that they were previously unaware of most of the activities of the football club.

Most of them promised to attend the club’s 2017 CAF Confederation Cup game against Tunisian outfit, Club Africain on Sunday, July 2 at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt.
