Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s players and technical team are making their way to the capital Accra ahead of their Ghana Premier League game against Bechem United on Friday.The game is extra significant because it is the first time Kotoko are going to be playing a home game at the Accra Sports Stadium.The club shared photos of some of their players, including starlet Matthew Cudjoe, getting ready to set off from Kumasi.Kotoko host Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium in the evening kick-off, before the weekend’s full schedule.The Baba Yara Stadium, Kotoko’s traditional home ground, is currently undergoing renovations and presumably, will not be available until the end of the season at least.As such, the Kumasi club have been forced to abandon their traditional home comforts for Accra.Asante Kotoko still manage to draw huge crowds when they play in AccraKotoko have 12 home games left in the current Ghana Premier League season, with more than a few tasty ties in there.They start this run of games against Bechem United and they round off their season at home to King Faisal.In between those games, they face Great Olympics and Legon Cities – who also call the Accra Sports Stadium home – in Week 16 and Week 19 respectively.Fellow tenants, Inter Allies are Kotoko’s opponents in their penultimate home game of the league season.The match against fellow title contenders, Medeama in Week 21 is certainly another game that will get tongues wagging.Arguably, Kotoko’s biggest remaining home game is the Week 23 clash with Accra Hearts of Oak.The match will be even more anticipated because Hearts will be seeking revenge for January’s last-minute defeat to the Porcupine Warriors on the same ground.
