“CAF has banned the Bahir Dar Stadium in Ethiopia from hosting international matches. The stadium was supposed to host Ethiopa vs Ghana’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Per the ban on the stadium, Ethiopia will now host the Black Stars at a neutral venue when they meet next month. The Ethiopia Football Federation has been given up to Wednesday 20 October 2021 to submit a new venue for the upcoming game.
If Ethiopia fail to reply the CAF mandate, the tie will be played in Ghana per the rules of the World Cup qualifiers”
