Ghana to take Zambia to Kumasi



Kumasi's reputation as Ghana's undisputed national team fortress will be rewarded again in September when Zambia visit the country for the final World Cup qualifier.

The city once again provided a fantastic atmosphere for the Black Stars at the weekend when Sudan engaged them in the 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Ghana have three more games before the end of the qualifying series, the biggest of which will be the last one against the Chipolopolo. It is likely that by the time Zambia have to make the trip to Ghana, that last game will be the decider.

The Sports Minister, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, and the GFA are reported to have been in talks to keep the Baba Yara Stadium as de facto host of the crucial home game in six months time.

Sunday’s win produced a gross of GH¢217000 (¢2.17bn; $100,000) from the gates representing almost a sell-out of the 38,000 tickets that were put up for sale at variable rates.
