Asante Kotoko are set to clash AshGold in a regional derby in a two-leg encounter for the Kick Malaria Out of Africa Cup.

The matches, scheduled for Obuasi Len Clay Stadium and the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, on December 21 and 28 respectively are an initiative of Kick Malaria Out of Africa, a non-governmental organisation using sports to eradicate malaria and cholera.

Kwabena Osei-Bonsu, Executive Director of the NGO, said the winner will participate in an international tournament with selected European teams in South Africa.

He said match sponsors had agreed to support the NGO for the next 10 years. Kotoko is expected to benefit from the deal with an ultra-modern training facility for the first four years and a stadium subsequently.
