Medeama to play Champions League at T&A Stadium
Newly-crowned betPawa Premier League champions, Medeama SC, are confident of playing their CAF Champions League matches at the refurbished T&A Stadium.
The President of Medeama SC, Moses Armah, aka Mospacka, hinted Graphic Sports that the new facility was 90 per cent complete.
He was, therefore, hopeful that the new architectural masterpiece would be ready before the start of the continental club competition.
He, however, said that the Cape Coast Stadium had been chosen as an alternative venue in case the contractors failed to complete the Tarkwa stadium before the commencement of the CAF Champions League.
Two years ago, Medeama’s sponsor, Gold Fields Ghana Limited, voted $16m for the renovation of the stadium into a 10,000-seater edifice with modern facilities.
The features include a seating capacity, the playing field, VIP stand, media stand, tickets booth, drainage, among others.
Last season, the club adopted the Akoon Park in Tarkwa for their home matches, leading to their crowning as the Premier League champions for the first time.
That achievement earned the Tarkwa-based club the ticket to represent the country in their maiden CAF Champions League.
