A mega concert held by Shatta Wale at the Cape Coast stadium has left the pitch in a rather dilapidated form to the displeasure of maintainers.
According to Frank Boahene, the chief executive officer of the Green Grass Technology, the firm in charge of maintaining the pitch at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, they were not consulted prior to the event that took place over the weekend.
Thousands of people stamping on the grass throughout the night left the pitch in a very bad state that raises concern over the maintenance of the multi-million dollar facility commissioned in May 2016.
“On Monday [20 February] when our workers went there, they saw the pitch in a bad state and wondered why the facility was in that state. Days before the concert, the pitch was in a fantastic state and so it came to us as a surprise. We consulted the Central Regional Sports Authority and were told Shatta Wale had a show there,” Mr Boahene told Class Sports, adding: “We were never consulted before the show.”
Mr Boahene noted that his office was in consultation with the Regional sports authority to find a solution to the problem that had arisen.
