The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is in talks with the Kaduna State Government over throwing the gates open for tomorrow’s game between Nigeria and Egypt at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium (ABS).

Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal that the meeting will take place later today to decide if the gates will be thrown open for the game and that is part of the reason why there’s no information regarding ticket sales.

However for the arrangement to work the state government will have to pay for the entire ticket in the 25,000 capacity stadium and talks regarding such are firmly planned to take place today.

We also gathered that if the arrangement fails to work ticket will be sold at the already announced price of 1,000 Naira for covered seat and 300,000 for uncovered seat as the VIP section of the stadium is reserved for top dignitaries from the NFF,sponsors as well as the state government.

Tickets for games in Kaduna are usually sold at points which includes Constitution road, Sabo Station Roundabout,Kaduna State FA office,NDA Bus stop and Bashama Road, Tudun Wada.
