Hearts To Be Crowned Sunday

The Professional League Board will officially crown Accra Hearts of Oak as the 2006/2007 Onetouch League Champions at the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park in Accra on Sunday.

In view of this, a three-man committee has been set up by the PLB to fashion out a detailed programme and find an appropriate opponent to play Hearts in a ceremonial match to herald the coronation.

Mr Welbeck Abra-Appiah, Chairman of the PLB, told the Daily Graphic yesterday that the committee is expected to submit its report before the close of the week for the rough edges, if any, to be ironed out.

Accra Hearts of Oak are to share ¢200 million with Ashgold, Asante Kotkoko and Heart of Lions in a graduation format.

Also to be presented to the league champions is a glittering trophy brought in from South Africa last week.

Details of the programme are yet to be announced, but it is believed the ceremony will be graced by the country's football big wigs and officials of Onetouch, the sponsors.

Hearts clinched their 19th league title last Sunday with 58 points ahead of the three other clubs and, together with Ashgold, will represent the country at next season's Champions League.

The third and fourth teams, Kotoko and Lions, will participate in the CAF Confederation Cup competition.

The four are also billed for a big showdown in the annual GHALCA Top Four competition.
