The dream of Enyimba fans to see their darling team return home would be realized when the CAF Confederation Cup group stage matches resume in July.This much has been confirmed by the contractor handling the re-grassing of the turf, Ebi Egbe, who also gave a pat on the back to Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu for his commitment to the team.
Egbe, whose outfit has been 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 as big in dimension as what Barca has at Camp Nou,” Egbe said.
The stadium facility expert said he has delayed his trip to Russia to get the Enyimba Stadium job completed.“My installers are coming in 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.Monimichelle, Nigeria’s frontline stadium construction outfit, also constructed the Samson Siasia Stadium turf, Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi pitch and the one at Katsina Stadium.
