Black Stars to move home matches to Cape Coast stadium


Sports Minister Hon. Nii Lantey Vanderpujye has ordered the Ghana Football Association to move the Black Stars World Cup qualifiers to the Cape Coast Stadium, according to reports in the media.

The Minister is said to have written to the Football Association expressing consents over the poor state of the pitch at the Accra Stadium ordering the Nation’s football governing body to move games involving the Black Stars to the 15,000 capacity edifice in Cape Coast.

Coach Avram Grant described the Accra Sports Stadium pitch as the worst he has seen after the Black Stars final Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda.

The Black Stars will begin their World Cup qualifiers with a game at home against Uganda next month.

Ghana is chasing a fourth successive World Cup berth having appeared in the last three editions of the mundial.
