Accra Sports Stadium Unavailable For Sports In Dec- GFA Told

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has received communication about the unavailability of the Accra Sports Stadium for football events next month.

The FA will have to find a new venue for the Premier League games in the course of the twelfth month.

The message was conveyed by the Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Prof Peter Twumasi.


“The National Sports Authority wishes to inform you about the unavailability of the Accra Sports Stadium in December for sporting purposes.

“By this letter, all the Clubs who use the Accra Sports Stadium are entreated to use their alternative venues to honour their league matches in December,” his letter read.

It appears the venue has been fully booked by artistes for musical concerts in December. One of such is Stonebwoy’s Bhim concert on December 22.

The announcement by NSA doesn’t seem to have gone down well with the football fraternity.

Spilling frustration Sports Journalist, Fentuo Tahiru chided, “Look at what Peter Twumasi is doing in December. He has closed the Accra Sports Stadium to football so he can use it to host concerts all throughout that period.

“A few months after that, ECG will come and cut the light because he hasn’t paid the bills and then in January the pitch will be looking like a desert. Smh!”
