CAF Confederation Cup : Medeama to play home games at Cape Coast stadium

Medeama could be forced to play their CAF Confederation Cup group matches at the newly constructed Cape Coast stadium due to the deplorable state of the Essipong venue.

It's widely feared the Essipong stadium in Sekondi may be passed unfit to host the group games amid several crippling problems.

Electricity supply to the venue has been cut off for more than a year amid several teething problems confronting the facility.

The media centre, mixed zone and places of convenience are in shambolic state with no internet connection at the facility.


The continent's governing body, CAF, has warned the stadium will not be allowed to host the continental matches if the venue is not fixed in time.

Medeama are racing against time to get the facility fixed in time ahead of their opening home game against Algerian side MO Bejaia next month.

The 20-seater stadium built as one of the new venues during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, has become a monstrosity.
