The team is based in Accra but they play their home games at the 43,000-capacity Accra Sports Stadium, which has been called "the best stadium in Africa" by England striker Gary Lineker. Its construction was funded by the African Cricket Foundation, a non-profit organization that receives funding from various governments and organizations around the world. The first game was played on January 13, 1949, with AC Ghana defeating their only opponent (a team from Nigeria) 3-1. In 1951, the team joined the English Football League (which at the time had four teams in West Africa) and was initially named Ashanti Gold.
