The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) has moved the much-anticipated President’s Cup clash between Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, ABC News can report.
The game, which was to be played on Sunday, December 15 at the Accra Sports Stadium has also been rescheduled for Sunday, December 22, 2019.
This is the second time the match has been called off.
A statement released by the GHALCA Chairman, Kudjoe Fianoo said the decision was taken in consultation with principal stakeholders.
“Following widespread consultation with principal stakeholders, GHALCA has decided to reschedule the match for Kumasi to serve as a precursor to the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.
The 2019 President Cup encounter between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak was first called off in September due to heavy rains in Kumasi.
The heavy downpour which pounded for several hours before the kickoff rendered the Baba Yara Stadium pitch soggy and unplayable.
GHALCA, the organizers initially allowed the game to start after inspecting the pitch but called it off after 10 minutes with the scoreline goalless.
