President’s Cup replay fixed for October 6 and 13
The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA)
has rescheduled the rained-off President’s Cup game between Kumasi Asante
Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak to October 6 and 13 for a replay after
consultation with stakeholders.
The epic clash between the two eternal rivals came to an abrupt end ten minutes from kick-off due torrential rains on Sunday, which rendered the pitch unplayable for the two sides.
After a quick meeting behind closed doors, GHALCA has decided to reschedule the game so as to make time for Kotoko to concentrate on their African Champions League preliminary round.
“After meeting today GHALCA is looking at 6th October and 13th October having in mind Asante Kotoko’s CAF competitions engagement and also our sponsors which is government and for that matter the Ministry of Youth and Sports,” Cudjoe Fianoo told the media.
The former Ashanti Gold chief hinted that there could be a change in venue.
“There could be a change of venue if the Baba Yara stadium will not be available because the stadium was supposed to be closed for renovations but for Kotoko’s participation in Africa.
“If Baba Yara Stadium won’t be available, then Accra will be the next venue,” he concluded.
