It was made up of erstwhile Ghana Premier League sides, drawn into Group A and Group B. While the Porcupine Warriors ended runners-up in Group A, Karela United also finished second to Hearts of Oak in Group B. But Kotoko beat Hearts on penalties to make it to the final. Karela United also beat AshantiGold SC 1-0 at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium to make it to the final.
