Accra or Kumasi will host Ghana’s FIFA World Cup qualifying play-offs versus Nigeria.
It has been suggested that the Ghana Football Association look into hosting the event in
Accra or Kumasi by the National Sports Authority (NSA).
For the month of March, the Cape Coast Stadium, where Ghana has played its home
games throughout the World Cup qualifiers, will be utilized for something else.
Accra Sports Stadium or Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi will host the Super Eagles of
Nigeria in the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup qualification. The National Sports
Authority has given the Ghana Football Association notice to take into account the
two sites for the critical match in March.

This year’s independence festivities will be
held at the Cape Coast Stadium, where Ghana has played its home games since
the start of the World Cup qualifiers.
The only remaining options for the FA are the Accra Sports Stadium or the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
CAF will be notified by Ghana of the venue change. Ghana must inform CAF of the
alteration three months before to the match, as required by the regulations.
After the first leg in Ghana on March 21, 2022, the Black Stars will fly to Lagos for the
second leg in seven days.
