Ghanasportsonline.com gathers the edifice which is the home ground of Premier League debutantes Elmina Sharks could be an option to replace the Sekondi Essipong stadium which is in  bad shape.

Owner and bankroller of Elmina Sharks, Dr Papa Kwesi Ndoum recently fixed flood lights at the venue hence could be another consideration by the organizers of the competition who have scheduled some matches at night.

Meanwhile the Cape Coast Sports Stadium will be maintained as the other venue for the competition.
