Swedru or Tema: Hearts mull over new home ground

The Tema Stadium remains their likely choice but Accra Hearts of Oak want to wait until Sunday to firmly decide on their new home ground for the 2017/18 domestic campaign.

Hearts travel to face All Blacks in a preseason friendly on Sunday February 18.

And this, the club’s Communications Manager, Kwame Opare Addo tells they “will make a decision” on the new home venue for the upcoming season “after the match at Swedru against All Blacks.”

“[This is] because we [Hearts] are considering the Swedru Park as well,” he added.
