GFA request for venue change for South Africa vs Ghana clash

africa

The Ghana Football Association has written to CAF requesting for a change in venue for the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifications fixture against South Africa.

The Bafana Bafana were scheduled to take on the Black Stars on 21 March 2021 in South Africa in round 5 of the qualifiers.

Due to the spike in the COVID-19 cases in South Africa, the Ghana FA is requesting the match to be played in a different country.

The Ghana FA sent the letter to Africa’s football governing body last week and is awaiting a response.

Ghana and South Africa are tied on 9 points at the top of the standings in Group C after four matches with two games left.

Sudan are on the 3rd position with 6 points whereas Sao Tomé and Principe languish bottom with no win.
