The National Sports Authority (NSA) on Monday issued a statement that the Baba Yara Sports Stadium which also serves as King Faisal's home venue has been closed down for renovation works.

According to the NSA, the closure is to enable the NSA and Ministry of Youth and Sports to have ample and uninterrupted time to fix critical places of the stadium before the celebration of Ghana's 63rd Independence Anniversary Celebration.

It said the public is therefore advised to make alternative arrangements for their programmes adding that, they would be duly notified when the stadium can host football and athletics again.
