Ghana vs Liberia: Fix The Accra Sports Stadium-Netizens React


Some netizens have reacted to the state of the pitch at the Accra Sports Stadium, formerly Ohene Djan Stadium, during an international friendly on Tuesday evening.

Despite some precipitations of rains prior to the match, internet users have gone absurd to criticize the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Sports Ministry over the poor conditions of the pitches in the country.

After a lauding performance by the Black Stars on Thursday when they faced Central Africa Republic in the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers, netizens were hailing to see a massive attendance in Tuesday’s friendly against neighboring nation Liberia.

The Black Stars took to their social media to update the score line at the halftime break of the match.

But, to their surprise, netizens overlooked the scoreline to fulminate them at the comment sessions on the X (formerly Twitter) app over the state of the pitch.

The Accra Sports Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium (40,000-capacity, all-seater) used for association football matches. The stadium was inaugurated in 1962 by a football match played between Accra XI and Kumasi XI.

On 16 June 2011, the name ‘Ohene Djan Stadium’ on the stadium building was changed to ‘Accra Sports Stadium’ without any official announcement by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly supported by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Government.

As a designated venue for some of the 2008 African Cup of Nations matches, the stadium was rebuilt, upgraded, and modernized to meet FIFA standards. Work on the stadium was completed in October 2007.
