Bawumia Commissions UG Sports Stadium For African Games

This morning, the Vice President of Ghana and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, officially commissioned the University of Ghana Sports Stadium and Rugby Field in Accra.

The stadium, along with the newly-built Borteyman Sports Complex, will be used for the upcoming African Games, which Ghana is hosting for the first time in its history from March 8 to March 23, 2024.

The completion of the University of Ghana Sports Stadium is a significant achievement, as it was started by the government of President J.A. Kufuor but was subsequently abandoned by successive administrations for a period of 8 years. This marks a notable milestone not only for Ghana’s sports development but also as a fitting legacy to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the University of Ghana.
