Nana Agyemang Badu Park – Dormaa

The Ogya Boys, With the chanting of their supporters yawning on the neck of visiting teams, it was always going to be difficult for anyone to get maximum points in Dormaa.

Golden City Park – Berekum

Berekum Chelsea in the last three football seasons have picked up a good form and hoping to replicate their performance in the 2011/12 seasons when they won the league. They had 17 wins and scored 40 goals at home. They have also conceded just 13 goals over the three football seasons.

Len Clay Stadium – Obuasi

Ashanti Gold recently won the tier two of the NC Special Competition which was possible with a strong show at home. Although they have conceded 17 goals at home, there’s no way they would allow an opponent to leave with the three maximum points.

The miners have rejuvenated their squad with imports from across the continent and beyond and would be looking to cast their dominance over the teams competing for the league title. In the past 3 football seasons, Ash gold has recorded 22 wins, and scored 52 goals. Clearly showing their prowess on home soil.

WAFA Stadium – Sogakope

It has become common to see the likes of Hearts and Kotoko tremble whenever it’s their turn to visit to WAFA Stadium.

In the 2015/16 season, WAFA famously defeated Kotoko 2:0 at home and Hearts received a 5:0 nil trashing. WAFA has 19 home wins scoring 56 goals. They have conceded 17 goals over 3 seasons at home.
