New Cape Coast Stadium To Be Named After Late Ghana President John Atta Mills

The new Cape Coast stadium would be named after late former Ghana president John Evans Atta Mills.

The edifice situated in Abura is now 72% complete and expected to be ready for use this August.

Work on the 15,000 capacity stadium funded with a $30 million Chinese grant started in August 2013 and is expected to be completed in August this year.

Former president Mills played a key role in the project to help improve sports infrastructure in the country.

When completed, the stadium will have eight runway tracks, a natural grass football field, three parking lots, two outdoor basketball courts, one outdoor handball court, a boxing training court, a press conference hall and a media room.

Other facilities include a medical room, an audience emergency room, two referee rooms, three management rooms, three facility storages, two security rooms, two VIP lobby halls, four athletic lounges, 22 guest rooms and a number of track and field sports devices.
