The dream of Enyimba fans to see their darling team return home is to be realised when the CAF Confederation Cup group stage matches resume in July.
This had been confirmed by the contractor handling the re grassing of the turf, Ebi Egbe, who also gave a pat on the back to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
Egbe, whose outfit was working round the clock at the stadium to get the job completed said he is delivering a turf with a Russian face.
“What people would see when we are done is a geotech pitch that would have a Russian face. This is World Cup season and what we are installing in Aba is a turf that can host any big game. Enyimba pitch is the second largest in the world. It is a big in dimension like what Barca has at Camp Nou,” Egbe said.
The facility expert said he delayed his trip to Russia to get the Enyimba Stadium job completed.
“My installers are coming from Italy and I m staying back to oversee things here before hitting Russia. I am making all the needed sacrifice as a way of appreciating Governor Ikpeazu, who is doing everything possible to deliver a world-class arena to his people,” Egbe said.
