Plateau United FC will continue its campaign in the CAF Confederation Cup playing at Agege Stadium, Lagos, when they square up with USM Algiers in the elimination fixture, the media, Albert Dakup has said.
As reported by the News Agency of Nigeria, the Savannah Boys has an uphill task facing the North African opposition after being knocked out from the CAF Champions League by Etoile due Sahel of Tunisia.
The Kennedy Boboye-tutored team will now play its next fixtures against USM Algiers at the Agege Stadium due to the non-compliance of Rwang Pam Stadium to the CAF inspectors standard.
Dakup in an interview said that the team was only given two stadium options by CAF which are Agege and Port Harcourt Stadium, hence we chose Agege.
“I can confirm that we will be playing our next continental match in Agege that is the directive as confirmed by the team’s administrator.
“We are only given two choices to make after our stadium cannot meet up to the CAF standards. We are told to choose between Agege and Port Harcourt.
“We hope that Lagos will be a good option for us as we will count on their support for the match,” he said.
