NSA tasked to submit report for renovation of stadia

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, has directed the Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Professor Peter Twumasi to submit a full report on the state of national stadia in a bid to get them in shape to host international matches.

This decision was taken following reports from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to withdraw the Baba Yara Stadium from hosting category “A” matches.

The four national stadia likely to be renovated are the Accra Sports Stadium, Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Cape Coast Sports Stadium and the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium.
