Ghana FA Cup committee confirms date and venue for finals between King Faisal - Dreams FC

Published on: 14 June 2023

Vice Chairman of the FA Cup Committee, Kofi Poku has announced that the finals between King Faisal and Dreams FC will be played on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.

In an interview with Kessben FM in Kumasi, Kofi Poku said, “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.

King Faisal managed to secure a spot in the finals after defeating Nsoatreman FC, another 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.

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.
