The eponymous Lizzy is Marcel Desailly’s mother. In 2011, the famous former pro opened up this world-class sporting complex in his native Accra. There’s one almost full-sized pitch, plus three five-a-side pitches. There’s accommodation for visiting teams too. Alongside is a very inviting pool overlooked by the Bedouin Pool Lounge (see pXX), a basketball court and a children’s pool. The pool can be used for GH¢30 a day (GH¢20 for children), which also entitles you to use the floodlit football pitches in the evenings. There are football training programmes for youngsters between five and 16, as well as a hugely successful Corporate Football League. If Marcel is in town, he’ll often be around.
