Official: Kotoko pulls out of Special Competition

Asante Kotoko have pulled out of the ongoing Normalization Committee's Special competition.

The Porcupine Warriors have earlier petitioned the Normalization Committee over the decision to play a one-off match.

Kotoko have stated in letters sent to the Ghana Football Association stating that according to its own regulations the semi-final was expected to be played on a home and away basis.

However, after the round of games in the group stage, the NC settled on a one leg semifinal game with group winners playing at home.

"We have withdrawn from the Tier-One competition, following the failure of the Normalisation Committee to grant our legal request for a change of venue and equitable distribution of the gate proceeds of our semi-final match against Hearts of Oak."
