Sources at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) revealed the Eagles subsequent home games are likely to be played in Port Harcourt owing to the spate of bad results in Uyo.

Super Eagles have won just two games at the magnificent Godswill Akpabio Stadium with the recent loss against South Africa proving to be the final straw for dumping the ground.

Although there are insinuations that the stadium is under a spell. Meanwhile, the reason for moving the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Cameroon from the stadium was also said to be based purely on logistics grounds.

Transportation to the stadium was highlighted as part of the reasons, as it takes 45 minutes to drive from the hotel of the Super Eagles to the stadium, while the none presence of vocal home support also played a role.

The choice of Port Harcourt ‎is yet to be fully agreed as renovation works at the ground is yet to be completed, so Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna and the national stadium in Abuja have been placed on standby.
