The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed Asante Kotoko’s participation in the 2020-21 CAF Champions League.
There was some lingering uncertainty regarding Ghana’s representative in the continental competition, with the Porcupine Warriors awarded the honour for a second successive year following the cancellation of the 2019-20 Ghana Premier League season.
“Asante Kotoko SC have confirmed their participation in the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League competition,” the GFA announced on its official website.
“The confirmation is on the back of a letter sent to the club on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 to confirm their engagement in next season’s CAF inter-club competition.
“Kotoko’s confirmation was contained in a letter dated September 7, 2020, signed by CEO Yaw Amponsah and sent to the GFA.
“The club is expected to go through the mandatory Club licensing process as set out in the GFA and CAF Club licensing regulations.
“Engagement and registration for the 2020/2021 CAF inter-club competition was opened on September 1, 2020 and will be closed on October 20, 2020.”
Kotoko’s campaign in the competition last season saw them defeat Nigeria’s Kano Pillars 4-3 in the preliminary round, before falling 3-2 on aggregate to Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel in the next phase.
The qualifying rounds of the 2020-21 Champions League are expected to begin in November.
