Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah has revealed, it cost a whooping GHC10,700 per match at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
Kotoko has been playing home matches away from their favourite Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi due to renovation works which force them to chose the Accra Sports Stadium as their home but later rescinded their decision to adopt the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium for the second round of the Ghana Premeir League.
Nana Amponsah believes, the Porcupine’s inability to play matches at Baba Yara factored to them losing the league title.
“We were successful in the just-ended season but that wasn’t our target. The target was to at least win the league title,” said Amponsah.
“We had a better away results than Hearts of Oak but our home performance wasn’t the best. Playing our games in Accra and Obuasi didn’t help us.”
He added; “We paid GH¢ 10,700 per each home game at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi.”
Kotoko’s season ended on Sunday when they were booted out of the MTN FA Cup at last eight stage by Berekum Chelsea.
