Renovations works at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium is expected to be completed by October this year, the National Sports Authority boss Professor Peter Twumasi has announced.
The facility was closed down in February this year for renovation works which forced the likes of Asante Kotoko and King Faisal to relocate.
Despite the lockdown in the country due to the coronavirus outbreak, Professor Peter Twumasi indicated works are still ongoing at the venue and hopefully by October the contractor should hand over the facility to the government.
“At the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the contractor was able to work on the facility before the 6th March anniversary celebrations. The contractor is still working and by October we expect him to be done with the work. If the lockdown does not affect his work we expect him to finish by October”, he told Happy FM.
He added that the NSA is also fumigating the various stadia across the country to also fight the Coronavirus.
“We have done fumigation across our venues in the country. We just finished with the Accra Sports Stadium and we will move to the other regions”.
“We are maintaining the pitches to ensure the facilities are in good shape before football returns”.
