Proprietor of FC IfeanyiUbah, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, have urged Nigerians living in Egypt to cone out in their numbers and cheer the Anambra Warriors to victory as they take on All Masry of Egypt in a return leg of the preliminary stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.
In a message personally signed by him, the oil magnate who travelled with his club urged Nigerians living in Egypt to come out en masse as their counterparts do in other countries, to cheer the Nigerian Club.
Here is a copy of his message:
“To the Nigeria Community in Egypt, I write to inform you that one of the Nigerian Clubs will be playing against Al-Masry Sc in Ismailia Stadium Egypt, and wish to have you all at the stadium to cheer the team up..“FC Ifeanyi Ubah “The Anambra Warriors” will on Sunday by 7pm Nigerian time, engage their Egyptian counterpart (Al-Masry Sc ) in CAF Confederation Cup return leg of the first Round of the competition.
“It is of note that FC Ifeanyi Ubah defeated their Egyptian counterpart Al-Masry Sc one goal to nil (1-0) on Sunday 12th February, 2017 in Anambra state during the first leg encounter. Now, the team needs at least a point from Ismailia encounter to qualify to the next round of the competition.
“Your coming to the Ismailia Stadium for the Support of this Nigeria Team will be most appreciated as this is the Club’s first Continental outing outside the shore of Nigeria.
“Again, history has always had it that Nigerian Community living in any host country always come out to cheer a Nigerian team up whenever they play in any country outside of Nigeria. Nigerians in Egypt have never failed to follow this antecedent.
“I write as an individual who had followed Nigerian teams to various competitions outside Nigeria for years past, where I would always meet with Nigerian Community in such countries as they trooped out in solidarity to cheer Nigeria team up during a match.
“I therefore urge you all to come out en mass. Let’s go cheer our team to victory… Anyi Bu Ndi Mmeri! (We are winners!)”
This is FC IfeanyiUbah’s first continental outing after winning the Federation Cup last year, their first trophy since the oil magnate bought the club from its former proprietor, Chief Gabriel Chukwuma.
