‘I cannot promise a new stadium under the current crisis’ – John Mahama


Former President and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, has stated that he cannot promise a new stadium given Ghana’s current economic crisis and the dire state of its sports infrastructure.

Currently, Ghana lacks a world-class category A stadium, with the Confederation of African Football often forced to make compromises to allow the country’s football teams to play continental matches at home.

During a Sunday night interaction with journalists, Mahama was asked how he would address this issue if elected in December’s General Elections.

“In the current crisis, I would not stand here and promise that we will build a new stadium,” he said.

“But I’ve said that under the big push, we intend to spend a certain amount of money over five years on providing good infrastructure, including roads, bridges, agro-industrial parks, and so on.

“That could include sports facilities. And if we make the allocation, then we probably would look at providing such a stadium,” he concluded.

The Borteyman Sports Complex and the University of Ghana Stadium, both built for the 2023 African Games, are the only two facilities currently in good shape to host major multi-sport competitions.
