Minister of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah has revealed that his outfit is planning the to close the Accra Sports Stadium for maintenance work.
The Minister made this known at the 16th anniversary stadium disaster held today at the Accra Sports stadium.
“The ministry is considering a possible closure of the Accra Stadium for long overdue maintenance, the Stadium has been neglected for maintenance for almost 9 years and this will help to ensure the safety of supporters.”
Stakeholder including football fans and the media have called on government to carry out renovations works on the stadium as it has developed several cracks and is almost looking like a death trap.
The last time the stadium was renovated was in 2007 which was used for the CAN 2008 tournament which was hosted by Ghana.
