Listen to article

Accra, July 26, GNA - Coca Cola Top Four Champions, Kumasi King Faisal will on Sunday welcome Accra Hearts of Oak at the Kumasi Sports Stadium in the second leg of a special friendly match.

The match, which, is being organised by the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) in conjunction with Sports One Network is meant to raise funds for Ghana's contingent for the Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

The two organisers have therefore called on fans to troop to the stadium in their numbers to help support the GOC in its bid to raise the needed funds for the Olympic team.

The president of Sports One Network, Mr A.M. Awwal in a Press Release to the GNA Sports said all stadium passes have been declared invalid since they are expecting maximum contribution from the general sporting public.

Hearts who lost the first leg 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium two weeks ago, are poised to avenge the defeat in a bid to capture the trophy by riding on the recent success they chalked at the continental level to capture the giant trophy at stake.

Faisal on the other hand would be seeking to confirm their superiority over Hearts in the competition and to lift the trophy at their home grounds. 26 July 04
