"After meeting today, GHALCA is looking at 6th October and 13th October having in mind Asante Kotoko's CAF competitions engagement and also our sponsors which is government and for that matter the Ministry of Youth and Sports," Mr. Fianoo told Oyerepa FM.

"There could be a change of venue if the Baba Yara Stadium will not be available because the stadium was supposed to be closed for renovations but for Kotoko's participation in Africa”.

“If Baba Yara Stadium won't be available, then Accra will be the next venue," he concluded.
