Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah has implored the National Sports Authority [NSA] to speed up work at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The Baba Yara Sports Stadium which serves as the home venue for the Porcupine Warriors and King Faisal has been under renovation since February 2020.

Asante Kotoko opted to use the Accra Sports Stadium as their home grounds for the 2020/21 football season.

However, Nana Yaw Amponsah believes the Accra Sports Stadium hasn’t been favourable for his side in the ongoing season as the team has performed better in their away games, juxtaposing it with games played in Accra.

He appealed to the government to help the team return to their traditional venue.

“We all know that Accra Sports Stadium is not our home. Our home is the Baba Yara Sports Stadium”, Nana Yaw Amponsah told the media after Kotoko’s goalless draw against ES Setif in Algeria.

“This time we haven’t lost any match away from the Accra Sports Stadium, which is a very good record. So we will plead with the government to help us so we can go back to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium so they should speed up with the renovation works”, he added.

Kotoko meanwhile have exited the Caf Confederations Cup campaign after a 0-0 drawn game with ES Setif on Sunday in Algiers.

  • What next?

Asante Kotoko have a big game coming up against their arch-rivals Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday 28 February 2021.
