The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria in association with the Nigeria Football Supporters Club and the Lagos state government have scheduled the 23rd of July, 2016 for the Lagos Farewell Testimonial Match for the two departed former Super Eagles chief coaches, Amodu Shaibu and Stephen Keshi at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere on July 23, 2016. A committee to oversee the match has also been set up according to the NFF.
Chairman of the committee and President-General of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Dr. Rafiu Ladipo said “The Farewell Testimonial match would see the Super Eagles players battle against Lagos All Stars team in the main match of the day, while the curtain raiser would be a game between the Lagos SWAN team and the Supporters Club.
This would be followed by Musical Concert where prominent Nigerian musicians and comedians would perform in the entertainment aspect of the programme. This aspect of the event is coordinated by veteran music act, Chris Mba.”
