The University of Ghana stadium project, which started about 14 years ago, has recently been stalled after its former financiers, GETFund, withdrew from funding the project.
The project, which started about 14 years ago, has recently been stalled after its former financiers, the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), withdrew from funding the project.
The idea to build a stadium at the University of Ghana was started by the erstwhile Kufour administration in 2004, but the project has since been abandoned by subsequent governments.
The 30,000 capacity has been earmarked as a potential venue to host the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for later this year.
In August 2017, Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah, revealed that the government was set to release about GH¢10million to aid in the completion of the project.
And it appears the ministry has now made strives, having secured GH¢5m to boost the construction of the stadium.
