The highly-anticipated Independence Cup game between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko has been rescheduled to April 11, 2020.
The two Ghanaian giants were scheduled to square off in a planned anniversary match to mark Ghana’s 63rd Independence Anniversary Celebration.
The much-talked about encounter was however reported to have been postponed due to visa issues.
But a release from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) disclosed that the game has been rescheduled due to the poor state of the Barnet pitch where the the match is expected to come off following a torrential rainfall in the UK.
According to the Barnet Chairman, Tony Kleathous,
“There is no real problem with the pitch that a dry spell and a bit work would not quickly resolve, but we have barely had a day without rain since September, and the forecast one in hundred year event has now become our reality.”
HRH Sports Consult and ProBall International, who are the organizers of the match, in consultation with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the two clubs have picked April 11, weekend of the Easter holidays as the new date for the match.
Further details will be communicated in earnest.
The Organisers of the match have sent their apologies to all stakeholders including the GFA for all inconveniences caused.
