Asante Kotoko and King Faisal will have to look for a new home ground for their matches after a sudden closure of the Baba Yara Stadium ahead of next month's Independence Day celebration.

The National Sports Authority on Monday, 17 February, 2020 announced the immediate temporal closure for renovation works.

A statement signed by Regional Director Edmond Appiah explained: '' This is to enable the Youth and Sports Ministry and the National Sports Authority have ample uninterrupted time to fix critical places of the stadium before the celebration of Ghana's 63rd Independence Anniversary Cele

''The total renovation will, however resume immediately after the celebrations.''

Kotoko just finished serving a three-match empty stadium ban after fans misbehave during a league match.
