Ghana plans to host the 2038 Fifa World Cup as part of its 40-year development plan, developed by the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) and presented to President Akufo Addo.
This was revealed by a member of the NDPC team that worked on the document, Mr. Nii Moi Thompson on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana program on Tuesday evening.
According to Mr. Thompson, as part of the long term development plan, Ghana plans to host international events like the World Cup and Olympic Games.
A yet to be constructed iconic stadium, “Black Star Stadium”, will be constructed with the ‘best 21st Century technology while the roof would be made up of solar panels.’ The stadium will be linked by road and rail.
Ghana has not hosted a Fifa World tournament or the Olympic Games in its history.
More to come….
