The Confederation of African Football have rejected the Cape Coast Stadium to host Medeama SC’s CAF Champions League group stage.
After inspection by the African football governing body, the edifice Stadium was deemed not fit and does not meet the standard to host international matches.
The report suggested that several areas in the stadium require an uplift and renovation in accordance with the CAF requirements, overall indicating that the stadium must be refurbished to fit the modern football stadium requirements and standards.
The Mauves and Yellows are told to select a venue from among the stadiums approved by CAF to host the group stage and knockout rounds of the Africa’s elite club competition.
The Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium is the only one in the country that meets the requirements of the host CAF/FIFA international games.
Medeama find themselves in Group D of the competition, as they face Egyptian gaint Ahly SC, Algerian champions CR Belouizdad and Tanzanian giants Young Africans.
Medeama SC will play their first group game against Al Ahly in Cairo before hosting Belouizdad at the Baba Yara Stadium in the second round.
The next home games will be against Young Africans and Al Ahly respectively.
