President John Agyekum Kufuor is expected to commission the refurbished Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday December 16, 2007 at 4.00pm.
As part of the ceremony, a special international friendly has been arranged between Ghana's U-17 soccer team, the Black Starlets and their counterparts from Cote d'Ivoire.

The Black Starlets squad comprise Joseph Addo, Isaac Donkor (Hasaacas), Francis Boadi (Great Olympics), Abdulai Seidu (Samreka), Enoch Adu (Liberty Professionals) Abeiku Quansah (Windy Professionals) Tetteh Nortey (African United), Paul Addo (Fair Point), Ransford Osei (Kessben FC), Prince Gyimah (Berekum Arsenals), Baba Sampana (Shelter Force) Eric Opoku (Corners Babies), Meisuna Alhassan (Wise Fighters), Philip Boampong, Abdul Naza Alhassan (Maxbees) Ishmael Yartey, Richard Mpong (All Blacks) Daniel Opare, Sadick Adams (AshantiGold) Robert Dabuo (Wa All Stars).
According to the deputy public relations officer of the National Sports Council (NSC), Isaac Franklin, the following rates will be charged to enable many spectators witness the said event;
Red Stand (North) -GH ¢2.00
Green Stand (South)-GH ¢2.00
Yellow Stand (Centre) -GH ¢5.00
VIP Stand - GH ¢10.00
The commissioning ceremony will serve as a rehearsal to ascertain the readiness of the 40, 528-capacity stadium for Ghana 2008.
“All who intend witnessing this historic event should exhibit the utmost civility, to ensure an incident-free event,” Mr Franklin noted.
“The Council wishes also to advise supporters groups who display Ghana flags with names of brand products imprinted on them to desist from such acts, since that desecrates the national flag and is tantamount to ambush marketing,” he added.
