The Ghana FA has handed $30,000 to Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak ahead of their CAF Inter-club matches this weekend, DailySoccerGhana.com can exclusively report.
Kotoko will rely on the cash boost to offset the hotel accommodation expenses and flight ticket costs as they face Algerian club MC El Eulma at the 25,000 seater Stade Messaoud Zougar on Saturday.
On the other hand, Hearts will use their share of the money to fund winning bonuses and match organizational expenses as they host Senegalese outfit Olympique de Ngor at the Accra Stadium on Sunday.
Both Kotoko and Hearts are eager to reach the group stage in their respective competitions to restore Ghana’s two slots, which were lost as a result of the recent poor performance of the nation in CAF Inter-club competitions.
