The National Sports Authority (NSA) has communicated the Accra Sports Stadium will be unavailable for Ghana Premier League (GPL) games for two weeks.
According to the NSA, the reason for the unavailability of the stadium is due to plans to undergo maintenance works on the playing field.
In a letter addressed to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the NSA says the renovation works will commence from Monday, December 13 to Sunday, December 26.
“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.”
Disclosing the decision of the NSA to undertake the maintenance works, spokesperson of the NSA, Charles Amofah told Asempa FM: “We know our league is ongoing but we have to maintain the pitch.”
“Greengrass Technology who are our consultant have been working on the pitch after every matchday but it is now prudent to shut the stadium for the next 14 days for maintenance to be carried out on the pitch,” he added.
In the said period given, six Ghana Premier League games will be affected.
