The Golden City Park is being prepared to host the remainder of Berekum Chelsea’s Caf Champions League games.
The 2011 Ghana Premier League champions made a winning start in the group stage of the continent’s flagship club competition after dispatching off Egyptian giants Zamalek 3-2 last weekend at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The poor attendance at the stadium despite selling a good game was the obvious low point of the match – strengthening the club’s resolve to get their Berekum grounds upgraded to meet Caf’s requirements in time for their next home game against Al Ahly.
“The scoreboard has now been fixed and is now fully operational,” Chelsea’s spokesman Isaac Amonsah told Hot FM.
“We were expecting the visit of the Ghana FA boss (Kwasi Nyantakyi) this weekend to inspect the facility but for obvious reasons he will not be able to come as scheduled.
“He will therefore visit next weekend to inspect the Golden City Park before the next Caf inspection after which we hope to play the remainder of the matches in front of our home fans.”
Berekum Chelsea currently tops Group A of the competition after Day 1 in the group phase.
They next travel to take on former champions TP Mazembe on July 22 in Lubumbashi.
