An official countdown to the CAN 2008 to be hosted by Ghana on January 20 next year comes off on Saturday at the construction site of the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra.
The motive behind organising the countdown, according to CAN 2008 Local Organising Committee (LOC) Chief Operating Manager, Mr Magnus Rex Danquah, is to whip up public interest for the tournament.
Mr Danquah made the revelation when his Deputy, Capt. (retd) Andy Sam and Mr Kofi Aggrey of the LOC Secretariat, together with the new SWAG executive led by its President, Mr Ackah Anthony, inspected the Ohene Djan Stadium to assess the rate of work.
Mr Jimmy Castagna, Technical Director of Micheletti & Co, the contractors, assured the SWAG Executives that the stadium will be handed over by October this year.
