Ghana begins renovation works on Cape Coast Sports Stadium

Renovation works on Cape Coast Sports Stadium in Ghana have begun. Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah confirmed this after his inspection visit at the site.

The Cape Coast Stadium is Ghana’s first sports project of this scale since the country hosted its last Cup of Nations in 2008. It was constructed in 2012 at a cost of US $33.35m. The Chinese government contributed roughly US $30m, while the Ghanaian counterparts submitted US $3.35m; after which the facility was officially handed over to the government in 2016.

The stadium complex has a 22-room hostel facility, a canteen, kitchen, fire-fighting room, storage rooms among others. It also features a 300 car parking capacity, two basketball fields, a handball court and tennis court, and an indoor facility that can be used for any indoor games.


The complex which was designed by the China IPPR International Engineering Corporationled by architect Zhou Ju, is set to receive the face-lift following a three-year maintenance MOU signed between China and Ghana in September 2018 when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo visited the country.

Renovation works

The renovation works on the project include: repairs of the scoreboard and floodlights, replacement of broken seats, repair and replacement of gym equipment, extension of the main stadium walls as well the construction of emergency routes from the stadium among others.

The maintenance agreement also includes a capacity training program whereby Ghanaians will be skilled in maintaining the edifice and the country’s other sporting infrastructures. Hon. Isaac Kwame noted that the government’s priority is to ensure all the sports facilities in the country receive periodic maintenance, adding that huge sums of funds cannot be invested in providing modern sports edifices only for them to be left to deteriorate.
