Bafana Bafana delayed in Port Harcourt, call out the NFF ahead of the World Cup qualifier

The Bafana Bafana players and officials were forced to spend the night in Port Harcourt after being unable to travel to Uyo for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier with Nigeria.

The South African squad arrived in Port Harcourt from Johannesburg on Wednesday night but were unable to go to Uyo because the airport had closed before their scheduled departure.

Disappointed with this development, the Bafana Bafana on its X platform complained of their predicament.

“Bafana Bafana have been on the road for 18 hours and still not at the base in Nigeria. The team is currently at Port Harcourt Airport where they cleared customs, awaiting transfer to the hotel, to spend the night.

“Uyo airport had closed by the time the team was scheduled to take off.” The team complained.
