Extra stadium info – Accra Sports Stadium

In 1963, the national football team of Ghana were crowned African champions at the Accra Sports Stadium after beating Sudan 3-0. Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club, the first sports club from Accra with 100,000 followers on its main social media page, was founded in 1911. In 2000, the club won the African championship for football clubs for the first time in their history in front of tens of thousands of fans in Accra. The Hearts of Oak won their 20th domestic top-flight football league title in 2009. The Serbian manager Kostadin Papić, who managed football clubs in several African countries, left the Accra Hearts of Oak soon after they won their 20th title. In 2001, he won the Nigerian top-flight football league with Enyimba. It was the inaugural championship title for the football club.
