Prices soared beyond expectations as the Black Stars rushed to town to take on their biggest rivals in world football. The Ghanaian team received a rousing welcome when they landed in Garden City on Tuesday.

The Black Stars shut out Egypt 6-1 at Baba Yara Sports Stadium on October 15, 2013, making the second leg in Cairo a mere formality. Ghana qualified for the World Cup in 2014 with victory in Kumasi.

The 6-1 thrashing is not Ghana’s only famous victory in Kumasi. A year before the game against Egypt, the Black Stars beat Lesotho 7-0 at the same venue.

The Black Stars also beat Ethiopia 5-0 at Baba Yara Sports Stadium in AFCON 2019 Qualifiers. Kumasi produces goals for the Black Stars which is why they except the Super Eagles to panic.

Meanwhile, football is considered a religion in the Ashanti region and whenever the Black Stars come to town they are royally received.

Kumasi fans flock to the stadium to watch Ghana play all the time and as usual the 40,000 seater stadium is expected to be packed to the brim.
