KF Egnatia Rrogozhinë to name stadium after Raphael Dwamena

Published on: 04 June 2024

KF Egnatia Rrogozhinë President, Agim Demrozi has announced their yet-to-be-constructed stadium will be named after former striker, Raphael Dwamena.

The former Ghana international joined the Albanian side as a free agent in December 2022 on a year-and-a-half-half contract which was later extended to two years.

However, the promising attacker lost his life in November following his collapse on the pitch while playing for the Albanian side in a league game.

The 28-year-old lost consciousness in the 23rd minute during the league match between his side Egnatia and Partizani and was immediately taken to the hospital.

Dwamena, however, did not survive upon arrival at the hospital leading to the unfortunate incident.

And according to Agim Demrozi, the club will honour Dwamena by naming their yet-to-be-constructed stadium after the striker.
