The Ghana Football Association has revealed that Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold Sporting Club have been given the green light to feature in club competitions on the African continent next season.

According to the spokesperson of the GFA, Henry Twum Asante, following the announcement of the cancellation of the 2019/2020 football season, it decided to allow the tier one and two winners of the Normalisation Committee’s Special Competition played in 2019, to represent the country.

Per the relevant provisions of the CAF inter-club football Regulations, Asante Kotoko and AshGold will now represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League and the Confederations Cup respectively.

Asante Kotoko won the tier-one Special Competition while Ashgold emerged victors in the tier-two.

Speaking on Accra-based Angel FM, Mr Twum said if Kotoko and Ashgold decline the offer, the right will be given to the runners-up of the two competitions.

Kotoko and Ashantigold both failed to make it to the group stages of the CAF club competition last season.
