Cape Coast stadium unavailable for World Cup qualifier due to Independence day celebration – NSA

The National Sports Authority has announced that the Cape Coast stadium will be unavailable to the Ghana Football Association for Ghana’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers play-off against Nigeria.

This disclosure follows the State Protocol’s decision to hold this year’s Independence Day celebration at the said venue.

In a letter signed by the Director-General of the National Sports Authority, Prof. Peter Twumasi, he said “I respectfully write to you to inform you of the decision by the State Protocol at the Jubilee House to hold this year’s Independence Anniversary Celebration at the Cape Coast Stadium on 6th March 2022.”

“By this letter, the Ghana Football Association is accordingly informed of this decision and advised to resort to other venues preferably the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and Accra Sports Stadium respectively for the March 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff qualifier between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria,” he added.

NSA indicates that, due to plans for the 6th March celebrations, the Cape Coast stadium will be closed down to sporting activities to allow for maintenance and beautification works to be done.
