Asante Kotoko new board charged to build a stadium


The new nine-member Board of Directors of Asante Kotoko has been tasked to build a stadium before their three-year mandate end.

The new Board of Directors was inaugurated on Tuesday in Kumasi.

Reading out the tasks for the Board, Chief of Staff at the Manhyia Palace, Kofi Badu said it will be prudent for the 23 times Ghana Premier League champions to own its facility for matches after completing a planned academy and training facility complex project.

“Your first order is to develop the Adako-Jachie field into the best sports complex in the sub-region to contain a giant soccer academy and the best training facility complete a first-class gym, medical and nutritional and all the auxiliary things needed for such a facility.

“While implementing the academy and training facility complex, you should begin preparations for Kotoko’s own stadium within the shortest possible time.

“No doubt the Baba Yara Stadium has been a useful home for Kotoko and will continue to be so. However, going forward, it makes economic sense for the club to own its stadium even if some category of matches will continue to be played at the national stadium,” he stated.
