CAF Champions League: Kotoko budget GHC 120, 000 for Champions league knockout stage

Kotoko would play six matches before reaching the group phase of the premier African Inter club competition and have therefore estimated an amount of GHC 20,000 for every game they will play in the knockout stage.

The Porcupine Warriors would go through three stages before reaching the group phase of the CAF Champions League and each stage requires two legs, making a total of six matches.

The Ghana Champions have therefore set an African Club Committee chaired by Alhaji Lamini to plan for their participation in the competition and in its meeting on Wednesday decided to raise funds to the tune of GHC 120,000 to help the course of the club in the CAF Champions League.

Kotoko have been drawn with Lions of Sierra Leone at the Preliminary stage, but due to Eboola virus scare, there are reports that the Sierra Leonean champions have withdrawn from the competition. This news will be a big sigh of relief to the Porcupine Warriors because it would save them an amount of GHC 40,000 budgeted for the preliminary stage.

The two times champions of Africa bowed out of the elite African Club competition in 2014 at the Preliminary stage against Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) of Liberia.
