Kotoko bag ¢145,625 as net after CARA Brazzaville clash


The Porcupine Warriors had a near-fully packed stadium on Sunday when they pipped Congolese side CARA Brazzaville 1-0 in the Caf Confederation Cup preliminary round first leg.

Despite three penalty kicks missed by Sadick Adams, Amos Frimpong and Baba Mahama, substitute Yakubu Mohammed fetched the match-winner with a late penalty.

According to AshesGyamera.com, the stadium contained a little over 35,000 spectators.

The gross for the day according to our sources indicate that ¢253,352 was as gross fetched from the gate proceeds.

However, ¢107,726.81 which represented almost 40 per cent was deducted from the gross as charges which included VAT.

Also, Kotoko took home ¢145,625.19 as the net.

AshesGyamera understands that Kotoko are not happy with the deductions but have began their preparations to travel to Brazzaville next week with management member Tom Krugger expected to arrive in Togo on Tuesday to process the side’s visas for the second leg scheduled for February 21.
