The National Sports Authority (NSA) has announced the immediate closure of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium for renovation works ahead of the 63rd national Independence Day celebrations in March this year.
The authority made the announcement on Monday via a statement signed by Acting Director of the Ashanti Regional office of the NSA, Edmond Appiah.
The statement said that there were important renovation works that needed to be done at the ground and so, all sporting activities in football and athletics needed to be halted and users of the stadium would have to find other facilities to use.
The decision will affect Asante Kotoko and King Faisal who use the facility for their home matches in the Ghana Premier League.
The statement went on to add that that the full renovation will resume after the celebrations.
