Ejected Kotoko considering Bechem & two other venues as home ground


The Porcupine Warriors are now desperately in search of a new base after been told to leave their their favourite ground to allow renovations

Asante Kotoko have began plans to look for a new venue for their Ghana Premier League home games according to Nana Gyambibi ‘Coker’.

The Porcupine Warriors together with King Faisal were officially notified to exit the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday following Ghana government’s decision to renovate the edifice for the first time since it hosted the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008.

Although, Kotoko top hierarchy admits they are not impressed with the decision since they were not given a prior notice, three venues are been considered before they play their next home game against Bechem United.

“Following the decision by National Sports Authority, Kotoko are considering either Obuasi, Bechem or Cape Coast Sports stadium to play our home games,” Gyambibi told Light FM.

“However, each comes with its challenges including traveling and economic factors. How influential can these stadiums be for us.

“We have to factor how we can get our supporters behind us and even how to convey them to the venue we will select because in all these, economical factors must be taking into account before we conclude. It is a serious situation for us and I must admit that,” he added.

The Fosu Gyeabour Park in Bechem is already occupied by Bechem United while Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi and Cape Coast Sports Stadium are been used by AshantiGold and Ebusua Dwarfs respectively.
