2019 President Cup: GHALCA Proposes New Dates
LISTEN SEP 9, 2019

Kudjoe Fianoo, the chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association [GHALCA] has announced two possible dates in October for the match to be played between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.

The match was to have been played on Sunday, September 8 at the Baba Yara Stadium but it was rained off after just 5 minutes.

There was an initial plan to re-play the match on Monday, September 9 but Kotoko’s participation in the CAF Champions League on September 15 forced the match to be postponed to a later date.

However, in an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, Mr Fianoo confirmed that October 6 or 13 were very likely dates for the honouring of the match and it could even be played at a different venue other than the Baba Yara Stadium.

“We had a meeting today and GHALCA is looking at October 6 and 13 having in mind Kotoko’s CAF Champions League engagements and also, our sponsors, the government, and for that matter, the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

"There could be a change of venue if the Baba Yara Stadium will not be available because the stadium was supposed to have been closed for renovations but for Kotoko’s participation in Africa. If the Baba Yara Stadium will not be available, then Accra will be the next venue.”
