A mobile scoreboard may be mounted at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba for the games between the Super Eagles and the Pirates of Seychelles, as well as the friendly tie against the Pharaohs of Egypt.
The scoreboard that used to be at the keshi stadium collapsed on February 6 due to heavy winds, destroying a section of the stadium.
A member of the Local Organising Committee for the two matches told The Guardian that the government decided to settle for a mobile scoreboard to save the state from international embarrassment.
The source hinted yesterday that the mobile scoreboard would cost the state millions of naira.

The Stephen Keshi Stadium, which was completed by the Ifeanyi Okowa government, witnessed a similar incident in August 2018 when a water tank collapsed and crushed three cars parked outside the fence of the stadium during the African Senior Athletics Championships.
