Asante Kotoko to most likely participate in Confederations Cup


The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has given the green light to Asante Kotoko to participate in next year’s CAF Confederation Cup following a petition by the club to be considered for continental competition.

A consensus was reached that Ghanaian clubs would not participate in CAF competitions next year after a consultative meeting in Accra between the Normalisation Committee and top executives of Premier League and Division One clubs, to discuss the future of Ghana football following the suspension of organised competitions in June,

However, Asante Kotoko petitioned the Normalisation Committee to reconsider its decision, stating the club’s readiness to participate in CAF’s second-tier club competition as defending champions of the MTN FA Cup.

The Deputy General Secretary of the GFA, Alex Asante in a letter to the chief executive of Kotoko on Friday, noted that the football regulatory body had favourably considered their request and would, therefore, submit the club’s name to CAF as Ghana’s representative in the Confederation Cup.

It advised the Porcupine Warriors to ensure they complied with all club licensing regulations.
