The venue for the 2017 West African Football Union (WAFU) Championship has been moved from Takoradi to Kumasi, according to media reports in Ghana.
There are indication that media rights owners of the tournament; Fox Sports TV, and the leadership of the West African Football Union (WAFU) have agreed to move the upcoming tournament to the Garden City due to the poor state of the Essipon Stadium and other facilities to be used for the competition.
The tournament was initially scheduled for the Cape Coast and Esspiong Stadia but will now be hosted at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi and the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
The Essipon Stadium in Takoradi is currently without power, a situation organizers of the tournament can’t cope with as per ghanasoccer.
The WAFU tourney is expected to get underway in September.
It will have all 16 West African states participating.
