Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rejected Aduana Stars’ submission to use Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa Ahenkro for their home games in the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup group stage, AshesGyamera understands.

The Fire Club after defeating Fosa Juniors from Madagascar to make it to the group stage, were handed group A of the competition which has Asec Mimosa from Cote d’Ivoire, Raja Casablanca of Algeria and Congolese side AS Vita but their venue lacks electronic scoreboard, adequate media center and floodlights as well as other factors which will aid live telecast since all games will be beamed on TV.

Aduana will travel to Abidjan for the first game against Asec on May 6 before they host Raja on May 16 at a new venue which will be communicated later as they are the only club to have their home ground rejected.

According to AshesGyamera’s sources, Aduana will either choose the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi or Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
