Global football icon and Super Eagles legend, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, sequel to his earlier claim that he would not miss an English Premier League game to watch an NPFL match at the stadium, has maintained his stance and opined on what to be done to attract fans to watch games at match venues.
Okocha especially highlighted security and safety to be the most important factors to be considered in bringing people back to the Stadiums to watch their favorite teams play.
In a league that has a multiple record of fans’ violence and match officials being brutalized, not even sparing club chairmen, it would be logical for many fans to stay at home and follow the matches across different platforms.
The fans’ violence have led to many teams in the league being banished to adopt other grounds as their home ground, and many others asked to shut the gates to fans in punishment.
Okocha pointed all of these as one of the may reasons why fans would choose to stay away from the match venues for their own safety and that of their various families.
