Ethiopia have been directed to select a new venue for their FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ghana.
The Bahir Dar National Stadium have been banned from hosting the upcoming qualifier after the edifice failed to meet expectation following an inspection by CAF club licensing team.
General Secretary at Ethiopian Football Federation, Bahiru Tilahun confirmed the Stadium will not host the game as they have been asked to choose a new venue which could possibly be outside Ethiopia.
Ethiopia will host Ghana on November 11 in the penultimate qualifier.
The East African side will thus not be enjoying home advantage when they take on the Black Stars in three weeks times.
Ghana are keen to grab a win over Ethiopia to increase their chances of making it to the next round of qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
