The Akwa Ibom government has announced that reduction in the prices of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Mediterranean Knights of Libya.

Super Eagles forward Moses Simon has called on supporters of the team to wear the green and white to support the team and the Akwa Ibom government is making efforts to have a full capacity stadium.

According to reports the ticket prices have been reduced to ensure maximum attendance from the supporters.

The tickets have been slashed by 50% , therefore the popular stands which is for an initial amount of 1000 Naira will now be purchased for 500 Naira.

While the VIP stand which is for an initial amount of 2000 Naira will now go out for 1000 Naira only.
