Aduana, Kotoko to represent Ghana in Africa next year

Accra, Premier League champions Aduana Stars and MTN FA Cup champions Asante Kotoko will be representing Ghana in next year’s continental inter-clubs competitions.

As champions of Ghana’s premier league competition, Aduana Stars qualifies as Ghana’s representatives for the Confederation of Africa (CAF) Champions League, which is also the elite club competition on the continent.

The Dormaa based side last and debut attempt in the competition in 2011 ended disappointingly following a first round elimination by Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca.

Asante Kotoko on their part will play in the CAF Confederations Cup next year for winning the MTN FA Cup following a resounding 3-1 victory over their bitterest rival Hearts of Oak at the Tamale Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Kotoko will be making a return to Africa after their first round elimination by MC El Eulma of Algeria in the first leg qualifying round of the 2015 CAF Champions League.

Ghana, since 2006, has had its number of slots reduced by CAF from four to two due to poor performances from Ghanaian clubs in the various competitions.
