Published on: 02 October 2020

The Director-General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Prof. Peter Twumasi has confirmed that the Accra Sports Stadium and the Cape Coast Stadium are ready for use when the new Ghana Premier League season starts.

After 6 months of inactive football in the country, the 2020/2021 football season is finally set to start in November following the lifting of the ban on the sport by the government.

Yesterday, a communique on the website of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) revealed match venues submitted by the various Premier League clubs for validation by the Club Licensing Board.

In the list, 5 clubs have chosen to play at the Accra Sports Stadium while Ebusua Dwarfs has selected the Cape Coast Stadium.

Due to renovation works ongoing at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, it will not be ready for use when the season starts, as echoed by Prof. Peter Twumasi in an interview with Rainbow Radio.

Meanwhile, the NSA boss has disclosed that all national stadia will be in the best shape for us at the end of 2020.

Below are clubs in the GPL and submitted match venues ahead of the start of the 2020/2021 season.
