Confirmed: Ebusua Dwarfs to play home matches at Ndoum Sports Stadium

Published on: 04 May 2021

Ebusua Dwarfs will play their home games at the Nduom Sports Complex in Elmina.

This emerges following the closure of the Cape Coast Stadium for renovation works ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers which start in June.

The Ghana Football Association in a statement on Monday confirmed that the Confederation of African Football [Caf] has granted them the permission to stage their World Cup qualifying games at the stadium.

However, the edifice will need a facelift to meet the standard of Caf and FIFA.

Ghana are aiming to book a qualification after missing out in the 2018 Mundial in Russia.

A statement by the Ghana FA reads:

Ebusua Dwarfs FC will play its upcoming Ghana Premier League and MTN FA Cup home matches at the Nduom Sports Complex in Elmina.

This is due to works on improving the pitch and other facilities at the Cape Coast Stadium to meet the required FIFA/CAF standards ahead of Ghana’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Ethiopia.

Dwarfs will however return to the Cape Coast Stadium after the Black Stars match for the remaining league and MTN FA Cup matches.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports, National Sports Authority and the Ghana Football Association are working feverishly to ensure that the Cape Coast Stadium is in the best of shape in line with FIFA standards to host all three World Cup qualifying matches of the Black Stars.

The Association will continue to engage all stakeholders to ensure that Ghana hosts the upcoming qualifying match against Ethiopia next month and subsequent ones successfully at the Cape Coast Stadium.
