Kotoko rakes GHS290,000 from Gate against Hearts of Oak

Asante Kotoko grossed GHS290,000 as gate proceeds from their outstanding league fixture against Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday Kessben FM have gathered.

The game which was originally scheduled to be played 3 weeks ago had to be postponed to a further date following Asante Kotoko’s bus accident on the Accra – Kumasi road after returning from a midweek league game.
