The stadium, which is also sometimes used for rugby union, hosted several Africa Cup of Nations matches. In 1963, the venue hosted its first final of the African championship for national football teams. Ghana won the match after defeating Sudan. In 1970, Sudan were crowned African football champions for the first time in their history. The Accra Great Olympics and the Accra Hearts of Oak use the Accra Sports Stadium for home games. Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club won the African championship for football clubs in 2000 for the first time in their history after defeating the Tunisian club Espérance Sportive de Tunis in Accra, with tens of thousands of fans in attendance.
