Enyimba look set to play their final CAF Confederation Cup Group A tie against South Africa’s Orlando Pirates outside Nigeria as they are yet to get approval from the health authorities to stage the game in Aba.
Enyimba will play host to Orlando Pirates on April 28.
They had on February 24, 2021, written to NFF, PTF, CAF and Federal Ministry of sports to seek clearance for the game to be held in Aba, but they are yet to get a final decision on that.
Benin, Ghana or Cameroon could be the venue for this game, if their home ground is not approved by the health authorities.
It would be recalled that fellow Nigerian club Rivers United played a Confederation Cup qualifier against another South African club, Blomfontein Celtic, in Benin Republic after the health authorities refused to give the South African club a waiver as regards quarantine.
Meanwhile, Enyimba will fly out to Libya today on chartered fight for a decisive Confederation Cup game against Al Ahli Benghazi.
There were initial fears that the team will not make it on account of logistical challenges, but the Abia State Government has since come to their rescue.
Enyimba are second in Group A standings with six points, while the Libyans are third on four points.
