Awka City Stadium Pitch Better Than That Of Abuja Stadium, Says Bayern Munich Coach

Posted on May 10, 2022

A German Coach, Christopher Loch, has lauded the quality of the Awka City Stadium in Anambra State, rating it above that of the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.

Mr. Loch, a Coach with the Bayern Munich FC Academy, was in Awka for the Bayern National Youth Cup.

“I was not expecting to see this. It is an amazing perfect pitch; good for football,” he asserted.
“We had this event in Abuja, the pitch was natural grass but not as perfect as this.”
“Pitches like this enhance the beauty of football; that is why coaches and players look for good pitches.”
“It is good for ball movement and ball control and off the ball” Mr Loch stressed. 

The German enjoined that the “perfectly built” pitch should be maintained regularly.

He said, “For a football game, I don’t think any is missing here, the only thing missing here are the players, let there be more games here,” he said.

Recall that Rangers International Football Club of Enugu (The Flying Antelopes) few weeks ago, adapted the Stadium as their home ground for this year’s Nigerian Professional Football League NPFL 2021/2022 season.
