The Ghana Football Association has granted the request of HRH Sports Consultancy Ltd. to organize a special Independence Anniversary commemorative match between Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak in London.
The special Independence commemorative match will take place in London on March 7, 2020.
In sanctioning the match, the GFA took into consideration letters from both Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak indicating their acceptance to honor the match, as well as their plans to leave Ghana on March 4, 2020, and return to Ghana on March 8, 2020, to continue with the Ghana Premier League.
The GFA, due to the national nature of the match in commemorating Ghana’s 63rd Independence Anniversary, took into consideration the blessing of the Ministry of Youth and Sports before granting the approval.
At a meeting held today at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Minister gave guidance for the successful organization of the match to project Ghana Football to the rest of the world.
Represented at the meeting was the Minister for Youth and Sports Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah, Chief Director of the Ministry Mr. Frank Quist, GFA President Kurt E.S. Okraku, GFA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, organizers Justin Addo, and Nana Yaw Amponsah.
