W/C play-offs: Football pitch slated for Ghana versus Nigeria in terrible condition

Football pitch at the Cape Coast stadium is in a terrible state just two weeks before the 2022 World Cup qualifying play-offs between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The Cape Coast pitch has been left in a bad shape after it was pounded with Independence Day activities on Sunday.

Military and police horses hit the ground for several hours during the parade to celebrate Ghana’s 65th Independence, according to a Soccernet report.

The grass, that was approved by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), has suffered severe damage and the surface looks brown, making it unplayable.

Earlier, Ghana proposed the game be played in either Accra or Kumasi but the decision was rejected by FIFA and CAF.

The Black Stars played all home games in the group stages of the qualification in Cape Coast.
