Ghana Premier League: AshantiGold-Asante Kotoko match to be played in June
The Ghana Premier League match between AshantiGold and Asante Kotoko, which had been postponed, will now take place in June.
On Monday, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced that the matchday 29 clash will take place on June 2 after it was called off last week.
“It must be noted, however, that should the security risk and the advice from the Security Services remain unchanged by the next home match of Ashantigold SC, the Association reserves the right to shift the home matches of Ashantigold SC to be played at the club’s selected alternative match venue,” GFA wrote on their website.
Due to security concerns, the match originally scheduled for Thursday, May 19, 2022, had to be postponed by the GFA.
“The decision follows an intelligence report and advice from the Ghana Police Service. The Miners were scheduled to play their regional rivals at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi on Thursday, May 19, 2022,” the GFA announced.
“The Ghana Football Association would announce a new date in due course. Stakeholders are to take note and act accordingly.”
According to reports, the Miners fans, who are upset about their club’s relegation to the third-tier league, intend to cause trouble during the game, forcing the GFA to intervene.
