The newly-built Cape Coast Sports Stadium will be officially commissioned on May 3, Ghana’s Minister for Sports, Nii Lantey Vanderpuije has confirmed.
The 15, 000 capacity edifice is part of the country’s ambitions to expand sports and develop infrastructure across the country.
“The Cape Coast Stadium will officially be commissioned on May 3,” Vanderpuije toldHappyFM.
“You know it was completed some months ago.
“So it will officially be commissioned to allow sporting activities to take place.”
Handled by Chinese construction firm IPPR International Engineering Corporation following a Memorandum of Understanding between the Ghanaian and the Chinese governments, the project started in 2012 and its completion is set to increase the number of standard government stadia in the country.
The Accra Sports Stadium, the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, the Sekondi-Essipong Stadium and the Tamale Sports Stadium are the already existing facilities.
The Cape Coast Sports Stadium is expected to have facilities for various sporting disciplines such as athletics, basketball, tennis, among others, asides its obvious domination by football.
