Delta Ready To Host 2027 AFCON – Oborevwori



Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, Tuesday, expressed the state’s strong willingness to be one of Nigeria’s chosen locations for hosting the upcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2027.

Addressing the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Bidding Inspection Committee during their visit to the Government House in Asaba, Governor Oborevwori emphasized that Delta State is an ideal and secure setting for the prestigious continental football tournament.

He highlighted the state’s history of successfully hosting sporting events and assured the committee of the state’s capability to provide top-tier security and facilities for the tournament if selected.

“We have hosted several athletes in the past including the Senior African Athletics Championship in 2018 and the National Sports Festival in 2022”, said the Governor.

“As a state we are renowned for hosting such high class sports events and we have not recorded any incidence of insecurity or any negative report.

“We have one of the best stadiums in the country and I can assure you that if Delta State is chosen we will provide excellent hosting for the event.

“By the time you finish your inspection am quite sure that we will pass even as I assure you that Delta State is more than ready to host the 36th African Cup of Nations.

“Since 2018 when we hosted the CAA, the hospitality industry in Asaba has witnessed more growth with the coming of more hotels to the city and more top class hotels will be completed before the hosting date”.

Earlier, Mainasara Illoh, the Bid Coordinator for Nigeria and Benin Republic, highlighted the rationale behind their visit to Delta State, stating that Asaba was deemed a worthy contender for hosting.

Illoh specified that Nigeria is expected to offer six venues, while Benin Republic contributes two.

He acknowledged other nations’ interest in hosting the 36th Edition of the African Cup of Nations and encouraged the State Government to continue enhancing the facilities used in previous sports events, thus enhancing Delta State’s prospects of being selected.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this subject matter, it may not be a
    taboo subject but usually folks don’t talk
    about such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!
