Benin refs for Hippos return leg

Tamale Sports Stadium with a capacity of 21,017 spectators will be the venue for the Hippos return leg in Ghana on August 11.

The Continental Football body, CAF has appointed a set of four referees from Benin to be in charge of the return leg of the Africa U20 Championship between Ghana and the Uganda Hippos.

In a related development, the Ghanaian Football Federation has also confirmed that the game will be played on Saturday 11th August 2012.  The hosts have however pushed the match out of Accra city to Tamale Sports stadium.

Kiagou Moumouni is the centre referee to be assisted by Kouton G. Narcisse and Dina Babadjide Bienvenu as 1st and 2nd assistants respectively. Tohouegnon Gustave travels as the reserve referee. The match commissioner is Bolaji Ojo-Oba from Nigeria.

Uganda will face either Morocco or Gambia in the ultimate qualifier if they dispatch off Ghana in the second leg match. The Hippos won the first leg 3-1 in Nakivubo stadium a week ago.

Tamale Sports stadium was completed in 2008 by the Chinese construction company and it was one of the venues for the Africa Cup of Nations matches the same year. It also serves as the home stadium for Real Tamale United Football Club.

The Hippos are now playing their trial game against newly promoted Super Division side, Victoria University at Namboole stadium. They will also take on Maroons in their next trial game.
