A bundle of newly registered grounds at the wonderful Groundhopping website europlan-online.de from my previous visit to Ghana is now available. This includes, for example, St. Aquinas High School or MATs Park , located on a military site, as well as other grounds of the former Jordan-Anagblah-Trophy that replaced regular league football in 2019.


UDE university communication channels are currently down due to a cyber attack. Please contact me at jonaselis.ude (at) gmail.com.

Welcome to the new website. I will publish updates on my research as well as reports on countries visited for football.
