Kotoko set new record by grossing GHC 639,000 in gate proceeds after CAF Confed Cup match against Coton Sport Garoua

                Kumasi Asante Kotoko team

Ghana Premier League side Kumasi Asante Kotoko have set a new record in Ghana football, recording GHC 639,000 as gross proceeds in their second leg CAF Confederations Cup game against Coton Sport of Cameroon at the Kumasi Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The highest proceeds recorded over the years was in 2014 during Ghana’s last World Cup qualifier group match against the Egyptian Senior National team in Baba Yara Sports Stadium which they recorded a little over GHC 400,000.

Speaking on Atinka 104.7 FM with Saddick Adams the Sports Obama, Communications Director of Kotoko, Yaw Safo Duku, disclosed that the total amount they had from gate proceeds on the 20th of January 2019 was around GHC 639,000. 

“The amount we got was GHC 639,000 plus as gross and after deductions, the net profit was GHC 428,000” he confirmed.

For over 20 years in the history of Ghana Football, it is only Kotoko who have made profit as huge as this. And this really indicates that football is gradually coming back as we witnessed over 35,000 football loving fans fill the Kumasi Sports Stadium on Sunday. 

After the release of Number 12 by Ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, all domestic league matches were truncated and a Normalization Committee was set up by FIFA and CAF to normalize Ghana Football. 

The Porcupine warriors, after beating Coton Sport of Cameroon by 5 goals to 3 on aggregate in a two legged encounter have been drawn in Group C in the CAF Confederations Cup with two Zambian clubs Zesco, Nkana FC and Al Hilal Omudurman of Sudan.
