Ghana Premier League side, AshantiGold SC have confirmed their participation in the 2020/21 Caf Confederations Cup campaign.

The Miners were given the nod to participate in Africa following the annulment of the 2019/20 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

It would be recalled that the Ghana Football Association [GFA] Executive Council on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, took a decision to select Asante Kotoko SC and AshantiGold SC to represent Ghana in next season’s competition.

This is because Asante Kotoko SC competed in the 2019 CAF Champions League after winning the NC Tier One competition while AshantiGold SC played in the Confederation Cup as a result of their triumph in the NC Tier Two competition.

However, after the GFA communicated to both clubs, Ashgold have confirmed their participation in a statement.

"Upon receiving a notice from the Ghana Football Association, Ashantigold SC on Thursday, 3rd September 2020 confirmed to the Association to participate in the 2020/21 CAF Confederations Cup," a club statement said.

"The club has taken steps to effectively comply with all directives with regards to the CAF club licensing application procedures.

"The 2020/21 Confederations cup is scheduled to commence on the 20th of November this year.

"The club is as well putting in place measures to commence full scale training activities as soon as restrictions on contact sports are lifted."

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko are also expected to confirm the participation in the Caf Champions League.
