Two times African Champions as well as seven times Nigeria’s league champions, Enyimba International Football Club has adopted the U. J. Esuene Stadium, Calabar as their official home ground for the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League season reports Sportstalkafrica.com.
The Peoples Elephant played the league in Port Harcourt last season away from their traditional Aba Township Stadium due to ongoing renovation and re-grassing of the pitch.
Not impressed with results and performance of the team in the league and CAF Champions League while playing in Port Harcourt last season, that forced the decision of the management to move their home games to Calabar.
We gathered players and officials of the Aba side left Ijebu Ode on Wednesday morning and are presently in Calabar to adapt to the town and turf of Stadium before the new season kick off.
Enyimba had a poor season last season finishing 10th on the table log, and were knocked out of the Federation Cup in the Semi Final by Nasarawa United.
A lot is expected from the new coach Gbenga Ogunbote, to turn around the fortune of the team.
