Asante Kotoko fans to camp at Baba Yara Sports Stadium ahead of showdown against Hearts of Oak

Published on: 24 May 2024

In an unprecedented move, some dedicated fans of Asante Kotoko are planning to spend the nights of Friday and Saturday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, according to a report by Oyerepa FM.

The aim is to prevent anyone from planting anything on the field before the highly-anticipated match against their arch-rivals, Hearts of Oak, on Sunday.

The upcoming fixture, set to take place in Kumasi, on May 26, 2024, is more than just a game. Both clubs have been poor throughout the season and they want to use this big game to put a smile on the face of their fans.

Asante Kotoko is eager to secure a victory and extend their lead over Hearts of Oak by five points. The team is looking to bounce back after a disappointing 2-1 loss to Berekum Chelsea, where Mezack Afriyie scored the winning goal in injury time.

Hearts of Oak, on the other hand, is under immense pressure following a 1-0 home defeat against Aduana FC. The upcoming match in Kumasi is a crucial opportunity for them to turn their fortunes around.

Asante Kotoko will be returning to their home ground with a confident stride, having beaten their rivals 3-2 in the first fixture back in December 2023.
