Executive Chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Kwame Kyei has revealed that the club wants to honor its home league matches at their Adako Jachie facility.
In the wake of the Sports Ministry closing down the Kumasi Sports stadium temporarily to allow for preparations towards the 63rd Independence Day celebrations, Kotoko will need to find a new home venue soon enough to host league and cup games.
There had been initial suggestions that the club was considering venues like the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, the Obuasi Len Clay stadium, Sunyani Coronation Park et al.
But the confirmation has now come from the club’s executive chairman, who remains optimistic they can fast-track work at Adako Jachie so they adopt it as a new home venue.
“Yes we want to ready the venue to host our league matches here, we are working on this, a lot is required, and our facility is bigger than even the Kumasi Sports Stadium and the Accra Sports stadium” he said.
Kwame Kyei however noted that, it will take time to complete the project entirely.
“We are working around the clock to get the facility ready so we can use it for league matches, but the entire project will take time, it could go for 6 months” he concluded.
Kotoko’s next league game is at home against Bechem United on March 1.
It remains to be seen if they can get the Adako Jachie facility approved by the Ghana FA’s club licensing board.
