The Management of King Faisal has welcome the temporal closure of the Baba Yara Stadium – saying it’s a ‘blessing in disguise’ for the club.
The Youth and Sports Ministry together with the National Sports Authority (NSA) released a statement, placing a temporal ban on the venue with immediate effect ahead of Ghana’s 63rd independence day celebrations which has been moved from Accra to Kumasi this year.
This is to allow for quick-fix renovations to be carried on.
One team expected to be hugely affected by the ban is King Faisal football club but the management is not perturbed about the situation but rather feels it’s an opportunity for the club to re-write the scripts once again elsewhere.
“The closing of the Baba Yara Stadium to pave way for renovation works is a blessing in disguise,” PRO of the club Awal Mohammed told Accra-based Angel FM.
“Management will meet tomorrow [Tuesday] to decide where to play our home matches. Bekwai, Sunyani and Obuasi are all available options,” he said.
They remain the only club yet to pick a win in the league – recording six defeats and amassing a paltry of four points which has left them rock-bottom on the league log.
