Kotoko threaten to boycott NC Special Cup Semi-Final match against Hearts of Oak

Asante Kotoko could boycott their NC Special Cup semi-final game against Hearts of Oak.

The Porcupine Warriors have threatened to withdraw from the competition should organizers fail to move the much-anticipated game to a natural ground.

Kotoko is billed to take on their perineal rivals at the Accra Sports Stadium, home venue of Hearts of Oak in a one-off game. This the Reds believes could be in favor of the Rainbow Club hence the decision to request for another venue.

The Normalization Committee have found it difficult to comply with Kotoko’s request having already set the Accra Sports Stadium as the venue for the semi-final game.

Hearts finished top of Premier B with Kotoko finishing as runners-up in the Premier B.

The game has been fixed for June 16 with the winner automatically qualifying for the finals to face either Ashanti Gold or Karala United who will also engage each other in the other semi-final game.
