Description

In 2012, the Chinese Government provided a $30 million grant to the Government of Ghana for the Cape Coast Sports Stadium Construction Project. The Ghanaian government also committed 6.6 million cedi (approximately $3.35 million). This project involved the construction of 15,000-seat capacity stadium with eight runway tracks, a football field with natural turf, two basketball courts, a handball court, an outdoor tennis court, a boxing training field, a gymnasium, athlete dormitory rooms, LED electronic display system, and an audio system. China IPPR International Engineering Corporation was responsible for project design. Jiangxi International Economic and Technical Cooperation Co., Ltd. was the contractor responsible for project implementation. Construction was expected to begin in February 2013, but ultimately did not begin until July 15, 2013. It ended on November 14, 2015. Then, on April 22, 2016, an official handover ceremony for the stadium was held. An inauguration ceremony for the stadium was held on May 3, 2016.
