Ghana Premier League champions Medeama SC have refuted media reports that they have moved their home venue for the CAF Champions League to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
Medeama SC played their CAF Champions League qualifiers against Milo FC and AC Horoya at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
However, it was reported that the club has decided to move away from Cape Coast to play their group stage games in Kumasi.
In a statement cited by Rainbow Sports, the club urged their fans to disregard such reports, as they have only submitted the newly constructed Tarkwa T&A Stadium to CAF for the group stage games.
Below is the statement from Medeama SC.
We bring to the attention of our supporters and the sporting public that Medeama Sporting Club has not selected the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi as its home venue for the group stage of the 2023–24 CAF Champions League.
The club has chosen the T&A Stadium in Tarkwa as its first option, awaiting inspection and clearance from the continent’s governing body, the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Currently, the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi and the Cape Coast Stadium remain the only two approved venues for the group phase of the CAF inter-club competition.
The two venues are under consideration together with the newly built T&A Stadium in Tarkwa.
The Cape Coast Stadium served as the home venue of the team during the preliminary round, with a decision on the permanent venue for the group stage to be made soon.
We want to use this opportunity to thank Ghanaians for their massive show of support for the club in the Africa elite inter-club competition.
Regardless of the venue chosen for our home matches, we are confident that Ghanaians will turn up in their numbers to support the team and help it thrive.
