The new Cape Coast Stadium is set to lose it’s status as a premier league match venue following the criteria set out by the club licensing committee.
The Stadium built by the Chinese government for the republic of Ghana lacks basic requirements for hosting of premier league matches.
The Ghana FA club licensing regulations requires at the minimum clubs to have an inner perimeter measuring 10 metres high, and to prevent the unwanted entering of unauthorized persons to the playing field.
The Cape Coast stadium has no inner perimeter, and our checks within the club licensing regulations indicates the recent pitch invasion at the match venue poses lots of security threats to players and officials at the match venue.
The source continued that the stadium lacks basic requirement in security for players, and a major aspect of passing the minimum standard for a premier and division one match venue is the inner perimeter that is not available at the stadium.
It’s left to be seen how Ebusua Dwarfs will react to this new situation, or whether the NSA will fix the inner perimeter at the stadium as owners of the venue.
