JV2 Consult, the organiser of the botched international friendly between Nigeriaâ€™s Super Eagles and the Black Stars of Ghana in London is reported to have made a massive loss, following the unfortunate development yesterday.
Fans who had paid to watch the match at the Vicarage Road, London are calling on the organisers to make ticket refund for them. It was gathered that a plan is underway to make the refund as early as possible.
Chief Executive Officer of JV2, Justin Addo, appeared numb and totally shattered upon receiving the unfortunate news just after paying the mandatory appearance fees to both sides.
â€œThe mood here in England is that of sorrow and dejection,â€ Head of Asempa Sports, Moses Antwi-Benefo, told the Accra-based radio station.
â€œI really feel for Justin Addo, a very fine young man trying to make a good living considering the massive debts incurred by this unfortunate development.â€
A similar mood is reported of the huge traveling party from Ghana and other living in England who are already agitating for money refunds.
Nigeria were set to play bitterest rivals, Ghana last night, but worsening riots in London has necessitated the cancellation as a precautionary measure to save life and property.
