The Enyimba football club of Aba has announced that it will grant free entry to all residents in Calabar the Cross River State capital in their Wednesday’s (today) CAF Confederation cup tie with South African team, Bidvest Wits.

The match is billed for 4:00PM local time at the U.J Esuene stadium.

The first leg at the Milpark Stadium, in Johannesburg, ended 1-1 after Ibrahim Mustapha Yuga cancelled out Daine Klate’s opener.

And, with Gavin Hunt’s men needing a win to guarantee their place in the group phase, the People’s Elephant have invented means to ensure victory according to club Chairman, Felix Anyansi Agwu who said it was a decision to appreciate Calabar fans.

“We want them to come out and enjoy a great game with us, to share in our moment of victory,” Anyansi Agwu told Enyimba media.

“As they have always accepted us as their own, we invite the beautiful people of Calabar to come out and cheer on the team as we march into the Confederation Cup Group Stage,” he added.

The first tie on April 6 had ended one all with Mustapha Ibrahim keeping his cool in the fifth minute when he was played through by Bashir to slot a shot past the wits goalie Josephs to cancel out Daine Klate’s opener early in the game.

He, however missed a great chance in the twenty second minute to add to his tally.

Many Nigerians were disappointed the match was not broadcasted live on continental satellite cable, DStv.

The team had also gone through some hurdles in securing visas with the Nigerian Football Federation intervening in the matter to ensure they arrived that country in time for the game.

“It took the direct intervention of the NFF President for our visas to be issued in time for the game,” Mr. Anyansi had told Enyimba media.
