The Porcupine Warriors will open their pre-season account with a friendly against the lower division side in far away Dubai
Asante Kotoko have been scheduled to face lower division side Al Hilal United in a friendly game as part of their pre-season tour in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday.
The Porcupine Warriors left Ghana last week and are expected to return by October 22 before they play their first game of the new season against Dreams FC in Dawu.
As a result, Kotoko have scheduled their first of many friendly games to be played in Dubai against Hilal on Thursday morning at the Al Hamriyah Sport and Cultural Club in Sharjah.
Kotoko new head coach Prosper Ogum Narteh, who replaced Portuguese manager Mariano Baretto, will hope to use this game to assess both the old he met at the club and new players he signed in order to form a formidable side for the new campaign.
On Wednesday, the member of Parliament for the people of Bantama, Asenso Boakye visited the Kotoko contingent at their base to give them support as he is on an official trip to represent Ghana government in a meeting.
