Kotoko will engage King Faisal in a pre-season friendly match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday, January 22, 2017. The kick-off time for the game is 3 p. m. This friendly match comes after the cancelation of the team’s trip for Libya the same day.
The Porcupines were expected to leave the shores of the country for the North African state but Management on Friday morning announced the cancellation of the trip on grounds that, communication between the club and the agent facilitating their travel arrangement has broken down.
The cancelation of the trip does not affect the club’s pre-season programme. Sunday’s friendly match with King Faisal would be the third after two other trial matches with Unity FC and Asokwa Deportivo. While Kotoko lost 0-1 to Unity FC last Friday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, they whipped the stubborn Asokwa side 3-0 at Adako Jachie on Thursday.
Rates for the match are: VIP – Gh5; Centre line – Gh2 and Popular Stand – Ghc2.
