Accra, September 18,
GNA – Restoration at the Accra Sports Stadium, has seen progress lately as work
is still ongoing in other to meet the deadline for the completion ahead of the
African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON), which is slated for November 17 to December
1, 2018.

A visit to the venue
by GNA Sports, saw improvement on the pitch as workers were busily irrigating
the grass, which has seen steady growth in the past two weeks

Due to time constraint
for the Women’s Championship, the surface of the pitch was only removed in
other to replant and reshape the grass to a standard level, which can last up
to a maximum of five years.

Some of the workers
indicated that, the grass takes about six to eight weeks to have it complete
growth and standard, four weeks has already been spent and they are hoping for
its final completion in next four weeks

The workers noted
that, the pitch is still going to be worked on when the Women’s Championship
starts, till it comes to an end adding that, it was the best way to maintain

Staff of Green Grass
Technology (GGT) were seen working hand in hand with Interplast in other to
make sure the irrigation system is in the right order and workers were been
trained on how the irrigation is done

Other improvements
seen at the venue were the replacement of new LED flood lights and the score
board, as they were at the finishing point

In addition, the
discoloured chairs are being sprayed whiles those broken are yet to be replaced

Aside the Accra Sports
Stadium, EL-Wak Stadium, Cape Coast and Presec pitch are expected to be used
for the 2018 African Women’s Cup of Nations which would be held in Ghana.
