    Closing the Accra Sports Stadium for entertainment concert stinks – Togbe Afede

    The Executive Board Chairman of Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede XIV says the the decision of the National Sports Authority (NSA) to suspend football activities at the Accra Sports Stadium during the month of December due to concerts is disappointing.

    The decision by the NSA forced clubs like Hearts of Oak, Accra Lions, and Great Olympics to relocate temporarily away from the Accra Sports Stadium. 

    Togbe Afede expressed his dissatisfaction with the directive while questioning the the rationale behind that initiative.

    "Somebody wakes up and suddenly closes up a sports stadium for a concert. What kind of reasoning is this?” Togbe Afede quizzed. 

    “When you raise the money to maintain the stadium for what event? Sports or more concerts. What is the logic here? But we sit down and not complain. Why are we afraid of the truth? 

    “Personally, it stinks and makes me ashamed that a stadium can be closed in favor of a concert while the Ghana Premier League is in action.”

    The closure means Hearts and Olympics now play their home games at the Baba Yara Stadium while Accra Lions settled on the WAFA Park in Sogakope.
