Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association, Fred Acheampong has denied media reports indicating that the Cape Coast Sports Stadium has been rejected by the world’s football governing body, FIFA, for hosting the decisive World Cup qualifier game between Ghana and Nigeria.
News emerging from Ghanaian media ruled out the availability of the Cape Coast Sports Stadium for hosting the upcoming titanic encounter between the two West African giants due to it’s poor looking pitch following Ghana’s 65th Independence Day Parade held at the venue on Sunday, 6th March, 2022.
According to the Executive Committee Member of the GFA, there hasn’t been any call or official letter from CAF or FIFA concerning the rejection of the venue.
Speaking on KESBEN TV on Wednesday, he said,
“It’s unofficial. Sometimes we here at ‘KESBEN Tv’ might report some stories which may end up as false.”
“Our media, especially the bloggers like publishing stories without confirmation or follow-up. There’s no single quote from FIFA in all the stories I saw.
“They will all do the publication immediately they see it from other sources. It’s unofficial.” He concluded.
Ghana will host the Super Eagles on March 25, for the first leg before the return leg comes-off in Nigeria four days later.
