CAF then stopped Stanley Eguma’s side from using their original home ground as it failed to meet the required standard to host international matches.

The Pride of Rivers having met the requirements have finally returned to play in front of their home fans as they got CAF’s approval to host the preliminary round in Port Harcourt.

The Nigeria representative in the 2023/24 CAF Confederation Cup will face Etoile Filante of Burkina Faso on 17th September in Burkina Faso in the qualification round for the group stage before staging the second leg in Port Harcourt.
