Nigeria pick World Cup team base camp

Nigeria pick World Cup team base camp
The Super Eagles will be based at the Vitoria Hotel in Campinas during their campaign in South America next year
The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the selection of Vitoria Hotel Concept Campinas as the Team Base Camp Hotel of the Super Eagles for next year’s World Cup.
Head coach, Stephen Keshi, NFF’s Director of Marketing, Mr. Adama Idris, Assistant Director (Media), Mr. Ademola Olajire and Eagles’ Team Administrator, Mr. Enebi Achor inspected the exquisite facility the day after the Final Draw of the World Cup was held in Costa do Sauipe, off Salvador.
Located in Campinas, a dainty city 70 minutes’ drive from the Sao Paulo International Airport, Vitoria Hotel Concept Campinas is an ideal facility that will truly help the Super Eagles concentrate on the business of aiming for a major impact at the FIFA World Cup finals, according to Coach Keshi.
“I love the place. It is good for our team and we will be able to achieve full concentration,” Keshi said as he looked over the hotel and afterwards, checked out the training site.
Keshi added: “It is also good that there is an airport in Campinas that serves domestic flights, so we don’t have to travel to Sao Paulo to fly to our different venues.”
The Team Base Camp Hotel is usually the base of every team at the FIFA World Cup finals, from where it travels to venues to honour its fixtures, during which it stays at Venue-Specific Team Hotel.
The African champions will be based in Campinas and travel to Curitiba to play Iran, to Cuiaba to play Bosnia-Herzegovina and to Porto Alegre to play Argentina. Only Cuiaba is more than an hour’s flight from Campinas. -----------------
