The closure aims to ensure that the pitch remains in optimal condition for the upcoming match between Ghana and the Central African Republic next month.
Scheduled as the final Group E match of the qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the encounter between the Ghanaian national football team, the Black Stars, and their Central African Republic counterparts holds significant importance for both teams.
In an interview with Akoma FM, Appiah stated, “The Baba Yara Sports Stadium pitch is closed for football and other sporting activities until the Ghana VS Central African Republic game on September 7.”
With preparations already underway, Coach Chris Hughton is set to announce the squad for the Ghana-Central African Republic match by the end of August.
The temporary closure of the stadium demonstrates the commitment of the National Sports Authority to ensuring that the playing field is in optimal condition for this high-stakes encounter.
