Asante Kotoko has expressed desire to use the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium as their home venue from henceforth. Through a letter to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kumasi-based club has given reasons for the purpose.
Last week, the Porcupine Warriors made the request to the country’s football governing body. But they saw it rejected with the association asking the club to come out with more reasons.
After carefully assessing the situation, Asante Kotoko has today sent a letter to the GFA insisting that the request made is purely based on sporting reasons.
The Porcupine Warriors club has emphasized that they want to decongest the stress on the Accra Sports Stadium. Venue that is currently being used by as many as five Ghana Premier League clubs in the ongoing season as their home venue.
“Our request to move to the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium is purely for Sporting reasons. Moving to the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium would give us a bigger leverage in terms of competition and reduce the congestion at the Accra Sports Stadium.” A portion of a letter from Kotoko to the GFA has said.
“We shall accordingly provide you with all necessary documents including an Ownership Agreement. Should you open an official discussion on the relocation process.” The letter concludes.
