Playing home games away the cause of Kotoku Royal’s relegation battle – PRO

Communications Director of Kotoku Royals Football Club, Okatakyie Afrifa, has attributed their position in the relegation zone of the ongoing Betpawa Premier League to their inability to play their home games at the Akim Oda Sports Stadium.

At the beginning of the 2022-23 season, the Club Licensing Board (CLB) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) rejected the Oda Stadium as a league centre as it did not meet its standards and so the club had to adopt the Cape Coast Stadium as its home ground for the season.

Speaking to Justice Collee, host of Original 91.9FM’s Hang Tyme Show, the spokesperson for Kotoku Royals said playing home away from home was a major factor in their relegation battle.

” In order to host league games, Kotoku Royals will need to develop several areas at the facility but the funds aren’t available”.

“Renovation works didn’t go as planned due to limited finances, as a result of individuals’ failure to fulfill their pledges and promises”.

“The MPs (Members of Parliament), who told us they will help us to complete the stadium didn’t come on board as expected”.

Kotoku Royals are currently occupying the 18th position on the Betpawa Premier League table with 22 points.
