Darling FM - NSA debunks Baba Yara Stadium rejection report

National Sports Authority has debunked reports going round that Baba Yara Stadium has been rejected by CAF.

According to the release issued this morning, CAF is yet to inspect their facilities ( Cape Coast, Accra and Baba Yara Stadium) for 2023 competitions.

Below is the full release;

"KUMASI BABA YARA, CAPE COAST AND ACCRA SPORTS STADIA YET TO UNDERGO CAF INSPECTION FOR NEW SEASON 2022/23


The National Sports Authority (NSA) wishes to debunk reports going round that its stadia have been rejected by CAF after visits. NSA is waiting on GFA's request as to which stadia they intend to use for their CAF matches. Such communication hasn't been received yet and therefore no CAF inspection conducted in our facilities recently for CAF matches this season. 

It is instructive to note that per conditions stated in CAF letter on 16th March, 2022 before Ghana vs Nigeria (played on 25th March 2022) to be relocated from Cape Coast, BABA YARA STADIUM was APPROVED FOR ONE-MATCH and TO BE IMMEDIATELY AND AUTOMATICALLY REMOVED FROM CAF LIST AFTER THE MATCH, and that Ghana is to invite CAF later for a thorough assessment and eventual certification like all others.
