Premier League giants, Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, will pocket GH¢50,000 each as appearance fee for this year’s President’s Cup match slated for the Accra Stadium on Friday.
The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), organisers of the big match, revealed that the two teams would share GH¢100,000 and 25 percent each of the total gate proceeds.
“Football is all about business and at the same time it brings us together, so the two clubs will take an appearance fee of GH¢50,000 each.
“GHALCA, as organisers, will take 50 per cent and the two clubs will take 25 per cent each of the remaining 50 per cent,” Mr Kudjoe Fianoo, chairman of GHALCA, said.
The President’s Cup is an annual ceremonial match organised by the GHALCA to honour the sitting President.
Hearts and Kotoko are expected to renew their rivalry for the second time in three weeks, having played out a goalless draw in a seventh week outstanding league match at the Accra Stadium on February 20.
The Phobians will be looking forward to winning their seventh President’s Cup title, after losing the 2019 edition to the Porcupine Warriors who are also seeking their ninth trophy.
Kotoko beat Hearts 2-1 in their last President’s Cup clash at the Baba Yara Stadium three years ago.
Kofi Kordzi shot Hearts ahead but a Mohammed Alhassan own goal and a Naby Laye Keita effort secured a comeback win for Kotoko.
