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.

According to Jamaludeen Abdullah, a special assistant to the minister, the ministry was ready to begin works to renovate all national stadia in the country to be able to host international matches.

“The minister has directed the NSA boss to present to him a full report on the state of our national stadiums in order for him to begin action to get them in shape and fit to host all international games,” Mr Abdullah said.

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.
