The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Tuesday said tickets for Friday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying match between Nigeria and Guinea Bissau will go for N2,000 and N10,000.

“The tickets are available at the NFF secretariat at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Old Parade Ground, NFF’s former office at Wuse Zone 7 and other designated places,” Olajire said. 

Nigeria, on six maximum points from their previous two matches, take on Guinea Bissau in a top-of-the-table fixture that will largely determine the swing of the pool.
