Kwara United to adopt Mobalji Johnson Stadium, Lagos for CAF Confederations Cup

Nigeria Professional Football League side Kwara United will adopt the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium in Lagos for all their home games in the upcoming CAF Confederations Cup.

From the report, Kwara United was handed the 2022/23 Confederations Cup ticket due to the NFF’s ineptitude to meet CAF’s deadline for the submission of continental representatives.

following the report, the winners of the Nigerian FA Cup got an automatic slot in the Confederations Cup preliminaries. However, as the Afonja Warriors finish 4th on the NPFL table, they got the nod to represent Nigeria on the continent.

Nonetheless, Kwara United are set to adopt the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium in Lagos as their home ground for the 2022/2023 CAF Confederations Cup.

The reason for the club’s decision is that the Ilorin Township Stadium does not meet CAF’s standards, this is because only six stadiums in Nigeria meet the continent’s football-running body’s standards. The Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo; Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Edo State; Enyimba International Stadium, Aba; Stephen Keshi Memorial Stadium, in Delta State; and the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja; and the Mobolaji Johnson stadium in Lagos.

The Afonja Warriors would have to make do with the 26,000-capacity Mobolaji Johnson Stadium in Lagos.
