OPINION: Aba can fund FIFA level stadium, make good business of it- Economist



In this blog post, Ndubuisi Ekekwe outlines the vision of Abia State to build a FIFA-level stadium and transform sports into a lucrative business venture. The post highlights the importance of investor involvement and the potential economic benefits of investing in Abia’s sports sector.

In the heart of Abia State lies a vision that transcends mere infrastructure development – a vision that seeks to transform sports into a thriving business venture. The dream of erecting a FIFA-level stadium in Abia is not just a lofty aspiration; it is a strategic move towards harnessing the economic potential of sports in the state.

Abians have long been known for their passion for football, with Enyimba FC standing tall as Nigeria’s most successful football club. The brand reputation of Enyimba among the youth is unparalleled, making it a key player in shaping the sports landscape of the state. Providing Enyimba FC with a state-of-the-art stadium is not just about giving them a home; it is about catalyzing a new era of economic growth in Abia.

Under the astute leadership of figures like Nwankwo Kanu and Sir Obilor Ananaba, Abia’s sports sector is poised for a transformation. The groundwork for the construction of a 35,000-seater FIFA-approved stadium in Aba has already begun, with essential steps such as soil tests and environmental impact assessments underway. However, the next phase of this ambitious project hinges on the involvement of investors who share our vision.

We invite investors to join us on this journey towards making sports a lucrative business in Abia. From stadium construction to sports TV channel investments, there are ample opportunities to be part of this transformative endeavor. Imagine the impact of having Abia Sports broadcasted to a wider audience, showcasing the talent and passion that define our state.
