The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given its approval for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers to be held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.



The ground will be utilized for the 2023 AFCON qualifier between the Super Eagles and the Sierra Leone Stars next month, according to a letter submitted to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Following the crowd disruptions that followed the second leg of the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ghana, there had been talk that the building might be forbidden from hosting international matches.

On the other hand, FIFA, on the other hand, has decided that the Nigeria-Sierra Leone match would be played behind closed doors, as well as imposing a $150,000 fine on Nigeria for the subsequent riots.

The Super Eagles are in Group A of the qualifiers with Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau, and Sao Tome and Principe.
