Pictures: Accra Sports Stadium 90% ready to host Super Clash between Hearts & Kotoko


The biggest football game in the Premier League is scheduled for Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium and works have been ongoing

Ghana Premier League’s biggest fixture is finally scheduled to take place between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The watering and maintaining of the pitch

The game was initially scheduled to take place in November last year but it was rescheduled due to Hearts’ participation in Caf Confederation Cup playoffs. The Phobians had to spend almost a week in Algeria due to flight arrangements after playing JS Saoura.

As a result, National Sports Authority has been working on and off the field to get the venue in good shape in order to serve a good game to fans and neutrals who will be watching the game live from the stadium or on television wherever they find themselves.

Hearts trail Asante Kotoko twelve points after 16 games and are in a dire need of a win to reduce the gap and hope to catch up in the second round of the season.
