Accra Stadium 12Oct2010

Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics must start looking for a new venue to host their home games in the Ghana Premier League as the National Sports Authority has resolved to freeze the usage of the Accra Stadium pitch, DailySoccerGhana.com sources have revealed.

The decision to freeze the usage of the pitch is to ensure maintenance of the playing surface, which was used to host social events during the Christmas break.

The pitch is expected to be reopened to the Premier League for use at the end of January 2015, but sources say the period for the regreening of the playing surface could delay.

Hearts, who are serving a two-match home ban, will not need to hire a new venue until match day five when the Phobians face city rivals Liberty Professionals on February 4th.

On the other hand, the management of Great Olympics will need to start looking for a new venue to host their match-day two fixture against Heart of Lions on January 21st.
