Hearts-Kotoko London game postponed – Organizers dispel cancellation reports


Organizers of the Hearts of Oak- Asante Kotoko game to be played in London have denied reports that the game has been cancelled.

There were reports that the historic Independence anniversary celebration match has been cancelled after football in England were suspended because of the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

The game was scheduled to be played on May 9, 2020, but Justin Addo, who is a member of the organizers of the match disclosed to GHANASoccernet.com that the game could be postponed.

He also revealed the two teams have been granted six months visas so there was no way the epic encounter could be cancelled.

“Clearly the report is speculative. But unfortunately, the present situation with the postponement of football in the UK most likely means that the game will also have to be postponed. Our health matters most in all things,” he told GHANASoccernet.com.

“On the bright side both teams already have 6 months visas, so there is room to postpone. We will come out with a definite statement shortly,” he added.
