Accra National Stadium

For the tournament curtain raiser between Ghana and Cameroon, up to 60,000 people are expected to pack into the Accra Sports Stadium.

It was recently refurbished - for the Under-20 African Youth Championships last March - and further improvements were made just before the tournament with the installation of new floodlights and an electronic scoreboard.

For training pitches, the four teams based in Accra will share the Tema Sports Grounds, which is outside Accra, and the University playing grounds at Legon.

These facilities have been extensively improved in the run-up to the competition.

On their days off, players and officials will find a sprawling seaside metropolis.

Not only is Accra the political and commercial capital of Ghana, it is also one of the major cities of the region and so draws in people from far and wide.

This should add to the atmosphere at Group A matches, as fans from nearby Ivory Coast and Togo are likely to be well represented.
