The National Sports Authority [NSA] have been taken to the cleaners over its decision to rent out the Accra Sports Stadium for a musical concert.
As reported by Adomonline.com last week, the NSA in a communique sent to the Ghana Football Association [GFA] said renovation works will take place at the edifice thereby asking the FA to relocate games that were scheduled for the stadium.
According to the communique sent to the Ghana Football Association [GFA] by the NSA last week, works will be carried out from the 13th to 26th December.
“The National Sports Authority would like to inform the Ghana Football Association to postpone or reschedule league matches slated from Monday, 13th to Sunday, 26th December 2021 ostensibly for planned maintenance works at the stadium,” the statement said.
“The Authority deeply regrets the inconveniences this request will bring to the clubs.”
During that period, six Ghana Premier League games were set to be affected, with Hearts of Oak, who play their home matches at the Accra Stadium, forced to relocate to the Cape Coast Stadium.
Legon Cities, meanwhile, have settled for the El-Wak Stadium.
But barely a week after the NSA’s announcement, GT Bank announced a week-long music concert to be staged at the stadium, starting Friday, December 17, 2021.
