New stadium: Cape Coast stadium takes shape

The Cape Coast Sports Stadium is finally taking shape as contractors work to meet an August 2015, deadline for completion.

 The 15000-capacity stadium is being funded with a $30 million Chinese government grant. The stadium when completed will have eight runway tracks, a natural grass football field, three parking lot, two outdoor basketball courts, one outdoor handball court, a boxing training court, a press conference hall and a media room.

It will also have a medical room, an audience emergency room, two referee rooms, three management rooms, three facility storages, two security rooms, two VIP lobby halls, four athletic lounges, 22 guest rooms with LED electronic display, audio amplification system and a number of track and field sports devices.

A visit by  to the site shows that finishing work has started on aspects of the magnificent structure and signs of how the overall stadium will look upon completion.

When completed, the stadium will be the only all purpose stadium in the country after the Accra Sports Stadium was stripped of it’s athletics tracks to make way for expansion during the AFCON 2008.
