Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak will not be in action on the weekend of the Ghana Premier League matchday 19.
This follows a decision by the Ghana Football Association to reschedule their games due to their involvement in the 2022 President’s Cup.
Kotoko was due to play Bechem United while Hearts of Oak host WAFA on March 6. But Bechem versus Kotoko will be played on March 8, with Hearts playing WAFA the next day.
“Following the decision of the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) to sanction the President’s Cup between Accra Hearts of Oak SC and Asante Kotoko SC, their Premier League Match Day 19 games have been rescheduled,” the GFA published on their website.
“The President’s Cup will be played in honour of H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo President of the Republic of Ghana on Friday, March 4, 2022, at the Accra Sports stadium. The match also forms part of Ghana’s Independence Anniversary celebration.”
“As a result, the Premier League game between Bechem United FC and Asante Kotoko SC has been rescheduled to Tuesday, March 8, while the game between Accra Hearts of Oak SC and WAFA has been moved to Wednesday, March 9, 2022.”
“All stakeholders are to note that all other matches slated for Match Day 19 in the Ghana Premier League will go on as scheduled.”
