King Faisal defender, Attah Kusi has described the club’s return to their home venue, the Baba Yara Stadium as the best news of the season.
The Ghana Premier League club, look a rejuvenated side this term after surviving relegation last season.
The “Insha Allah” Boys produced a spirited performance in the week one of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League – beating West Africa Football Academy 1-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium last Sunday.
A late strike by Zubairu Ibrahim gave King Faisal the first three points of the season against WAFA who were reduced to 10-men after Marvin Owusu was sent off on the 52nd minute.
King Faisal, alongside their regional rivals, Asante Kotoko have been away from the Baba Yara Stadium for one year and eight months due to government’s renovation of the facility.
Kotoko will play at the Baba Yara Stadium for the first time on October 7 against Bechem United in week 2 after King Faisal first tasted victory on the pitch against WAFA.
Attah Kusi says it is a welcoming news for King Faisal.
“We were happy to return to the Baba Yara Stadium.
“Because last season we always travelled to Techiman [Ohene Ameyaw Park] to play our [home] matches.
“So returning to the Baba Yara Stadium Stadium was a joyous news.
“Because we want our fans to come and watch our matches so it made us very happy.” Attah Kusi told Africa-foot.com.
Attah Kusi, 29 , has previously played for relegated Liberty Professionals before joining Asante Kotoko on a free transfer. He had a brief spell with AshantiGold before signing for King Faisal.
Following the renovation exercise, King Faisal adopted the Ohene Ameyaw Park in Techiman for their home game with Asante Kotoko playing briefly at the Accra Sports Stadium and finally moving to the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi for their home matches.
King Faisal have a tough task against two time Ghana Premier League champions, Aduana Stars in week 2 at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Sunday, October 7.
