REVEALED: Baba Yara Stadium ready for use


The Kumasi Baba Yara Sports stadium is set to reopen in later part of June, according to the National Sports Authority.

The Director-General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Professor Peter Twumasi has revealed that the Baba Yara Stadium which has being under renovation for months will soon be opened for use.

In February 2020, the National Sports Authority closed the venue for renovation after failing to maintain the stadium for many years leading to it deteriorating.

“There is a minor painting to be done but all major works have been completed and the place is ready to be used,” Prof. Twumasi told Daily Graphic.

“The Stadium is going to be key for our preparation and hosting of the 2023 Africa Games, all track and field sporting activities can be held there.

The NSA Capo added that, all 40,000 plastic seats have been installed while the pitch had undergone total refurbishment with modern drainage systems constructed around it.

“We have erected a new scoreboard, an LED floodlight, remolded the presidential stand and fixed the roofs and washrooms,”.
