Dr. Asamoah Gyan To Officially Commission Accra Aca Sports Center

Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan will unveil the first phase of the over $300,000 dollars astro-turf he constructed for his alma mater, Accra Academy on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.

Gyan who was recently honoured with a doctorate degree for his exploits on the football field as well as charity is set to commission the pitch.

Named the “Asamoah Gyan Sports Center”, the ultramodern sports facility is made up of a playing pitch, tartan tracks, dressing rooms and floodlights

The construction of the pitch is fulfillment of a promise made by the Gyan when he visited his Alma mater two years ago

It is believed that Gyan began his successful football career at Accra Academy before blossoming to become the legend he is.

The pitch will serve the school who previously a used a sand based pitch as well as some lower division clubs in Kaneshie and it's environs like Odorkor, Darkuman, Bubuashie and north of Dansoman.

Gyan is believed to have pumped more than 1-million dollars into charity. A gesture that obviously demands commendations.

Many people, including Yours Truly have commended Gyan for putting up the facility and it is a challenge for other professional stars to do same for their schools.

Gordon Attram has also put up a smaller one for the community of Alhaji Tabora where he resides.
