Baba Yara Stadium to host Ghana vs Nigeria World Cup qualifier

Contrary to widespread speculations that the March 25 World Cup qualifying playoff between the Black stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria will be moved from the Cape Coast Stadium in Ghana to Cotonou the capital of Benin Republic, NSM Media can report authoritatively, that the match will now take place at the popular Baba Yara Sports stadium in Kumasi, Ghana

A CAF inspection team inspected facilities at the Cape Coast stadium and later visited the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi. The team was totally dissatisfied with the playing pitch at the Cape Coast stadium and decided that there was urgent need for a change of venue.

That was why they embarked on an inspection tour of the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi which has now been approved by CAF and has also recieved the blessing of the Nigeria football federation, NFF.

The Super Eagles will depart Nigeria in a chartered flight on Wednesday next week for Kumasi venue of the match and will return sameday to Abuja for the return leg billed for the Moshood Abiola stadium Abuja, on March 29.
