Cape Coast to host Black Stars 2023 AFCON qualifiers

The Black Stars of Ghana will host their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] qualifying games at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Meeting a Caf deadline of April 25 to provide its home venue for the May 30-June 14 legs of games, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) submitted the 20,000-capacity Cape Coast facility and the Accra Sports Stadium having had the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi declared unfit to host high-level international games in the category of the Afcon.

However, the Black Stars will kick off their qualifying campaign with a home game against Madagascar at the Cape Coast Stadium on June 1.

Kick-off is at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday.

The second Group E qualifier follows on Sunday, June 5 – an away trip to the Central African Republic (CAR).

Later in September, the Black Stars will engage in back-to-back games with Angola to mark days 3 and 4 of the qualifiers.

Ghana are in Group E alongside Madagascar, Angola, and the Central African Republic.
