2022/23 Ghana FA Cup finals set for June 18

Published on: 14 June 2023

All is set for the 2022/23 Ghana FA Cup finals between King Faisal and Dreams FC this weekend.

King Faisal managed to secure a spot in the finals after defeating Nsoatreman FC, a Premier League club, in the semifinals at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.

Similarly, Dreams FC emerged victorious in their semifinal match against Skyy FC, a team from the Division One League, securing their place in the final at the same venue.

However, the FA Cup committee has confirmed Sunday, June 18, 2023 for the finals at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in Abrankese, Kumasi.

In an interview with Kessben FM in Kumasi, Kofi Poku, who is the Vice Chairman of the committee explained the decision to play the finals at the said venue.

“We’ve decided to play the finals at Abrankese on June 18 because the pitch is not as large as the Accra Sports Stadium and Baba Yara”

“The ambiance we will get at both Accra Sports Stadium and Baba Yara won’t make the game lively. Already fans are not watching games in recent times and if we are to play the finals with a very sparse crowd, you know how it will be. Since we started running the FA Cup, we always choose a venue which is not too big so fans can fill the stadium to the brim” he said.

The victorious team in the final will not only clinch the prestigious FA Cup title but also secure qualification for the CAF Confederations Cup in the upcoming season.
