2022 World Cup qualifier: Ghana ponder Kumasi Stadium for crucial playoff against Nigeria

Published on: 24 January 2022

The Ghana Football Association and the National Sports Authority are considering moving the Black Stars' crucial World Cup qualifier play-offs against Nigeria to Kumasi. 

The Black Stars will host the Super Eagles in the first leg on March 21 in Ghana, before the second leg seven days later in Nigeria.

However, after playing all home games in the group stages in Cape Coast, the FA is understood to be considering shifting the game to Kumasi.

The Black Stars in the past have played their home games in Kumasi before it underwent renovations.

The Baba Yara stadium is in good shape with Asante Kotoko and King Faisal using it for their home matches.

Ghana's famous 6-1 thrashing of Egypt happened at the Baba Yara Sports stadium.

The winner of the two-legged game will progress to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022.

The Black Stars missed the World Cup in Russia 2018 and hope to make a return at the mundial this year.
