Ghana Football Association is to meet the country’s Africa representatives Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak on Monday, today.

The meeting is to help the two clubs with monetary assistance, consultancy and assistance in communicating with the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF).

Last year, the Ghana FA stumped out US$80,000 from its accounts to quartet Kotoko, Dwarfs, Berekum Chelsea and Medeama SC.

The Football Association is set to appoint liaison officers and leaders of delegation for the two clubs.

The leaders of delegation are expected to be Executive Committee members while the liaison officers will be officials who have experience in communicating with CAF as was the case last year.

Asante Kotoko will play in the Champions League and have drawn a bye due to the withdrawal of East End Lions of Sierra Leone.

Rivals Hearts are in Confederation Cup and their opponents are AS Police of Benin.
