CAF Approves Accra And Cape Coast Stadiums For World Cup Qualifiers

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has approved the Accra and Cape Coast stadiums for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. According to the continental governing body the decision was based on the assessment of an updated report submitted by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The two stadiums will be further evaluated on matchdays through the CAF Match Command Center (MCC). In the event that organizational and stadium technical infractions are noted by the designated CAF officials during matches, financial sanctions may be imposed on the GFA as per the established CAF grid for lack of technical facilities in the stadium.

The Black Stars will kick start the journey to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in September 2021 against Ethiopia at one of the two approved venues.

Ghana are paired in Group G with Ethiopia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
