Mr. Quamie, FIFA and CAF Match Commissioner as well as CAF Inspector will inspect four stadiums in Nigeria ahead of 2016 CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup preliminary matches involving Enyimba FC, Warri Wolves, Nasarawa United and Akwa United.
CAF through its Club Licensing Manager Ahmed Harraz wrote Quamie to inform him of his selection over the weekend.
Yesterday, Quamie departed for Nigeria where he will spend a week to vet the four stadiums.
Upon the approval of Quamie, the following matches will then be played at those stadiums: Warri Wolves – Sporting Praia Cruz, 12-14 February (Champions League); Nasarawa United – Génération Foot, 12-14 February (Confederation Cup); Enyimba – Vipers FC, 26-28 February (Champions League); and Akwa United – Vita Club Mokanda, 26-28 February (Confederation Cup).
