Edmond Appiah, Acting Ashanti Regional Director for the National Sports Authority, has disclosed that the Baba Yara Sports Stadium will be made available to the clubs after the 6th March Independence Anniversary celebrations.

The National Sports Authority released a statement on Monday, Febuary 17 on the closure of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium which is to undergo renovation for the national event.

The closure means all clubs that use the venue for their respective matches in the Ghana Premier League and Division One will have to relocate and find new home venues.

King Faisal have opted to have their home games in Assin Fosu which is subject to approval by the Club Licensing Board while Asante Kotoko is yet to name their new venue.

According to Appiah, the Baba Yara Sports Stadium must be closed to allow works to be carried out for the 6th March celebration.

“The Baba Yara Sports Stadium will undergo renovation and the teams that use the venue are aware. The clubs were aware that at any particular point in time the stadium will be closed down”, he told an Accra based radio station

“The contractor is currently at the venue working and to save injuries and inconveniences it was prudent to bring a halt to all sporting activities at the venue”. he stated

“This is a temporal closure because after the independence celebrations the clubs can still use the stadium. The work will be done in phases, the Kumasi Stadium will not be completely shut down”, he added.
