Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko will lock horns on March 12th for Ghana@60 Cup at a yet to be named venue.
The clash between the two most glamorous clubs in the country will form part of Ghana’s 60th anniversary. Ghana will mark her 60th anniversary of independence from British Colonial rule on March 6th.
According to the Chairman of the Ghana@60 Media and Branding Sub-committee, Jefferson Sackey, the committee picked the two teams because of their rich histories.
He said: “Even their colours – Hearts’ rainbow and Kotoko’s red in the stands when they are playing and they draw a massive crowd anytime they are playing in any sports stadium.
“They whip up national interest and interests, they are the two top teams in Ghana with all due respect. His Excellency is very interested in sports so he will be there.
“However, we are yet to conclude on the venue because most of the Ghana@60 celebrations will be taking place at the Independence Square and the Accra Sports Stadium so we are striving hard to send the game to the regions,” Mr Sackey explained.
The clash will be the first ‘Super Clash’ in 2017 and it will come weeks before their Ghana Premier Leaguematch day eight duel at the Accra Sports Stadium.
