delivered with aplomb, for which right they qualified for the CAF Champions’ League and subsequent meeting with former Africa champions, Kotoko.

Like Kotoko, BYC have also played 15 matches in the Liberia top flight this season but unlike the Ghana champions who lead the way in the soon-to-be christened First Capital Plus Bank Ghana Premier League on 34 points, 7 clear of nearest challengers, Ashgold, BYC sit only 4 th in the 2013/14 Liberia domestic competition on 24 points and may have to win the 2014 Africa Champions League to make a return to the tournament next year.

But winning trophies has been a hallmark of BYC especially in recent years. The team which plays at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia, the 15,000 capacity facility where they will host Kotoko two weeks after Sunday’s first leg in Kumasi, also captured the Liberia Super Cup on two occasions, in 2010 and 2013.

“Liberia’s undoubtedly first and only professionally organized football organization for competitive youth soccer,” they introduce themselves on their own website and BYC in fact, have teams playing in various tiers of Liberian soccer.

They arrive in Ghana on Wednesday February 5 for Sunday’s duel at the Baba Yara Stadium.
