Accra Lions host the capital giants in the betPawa premier league in week 11 at the Accra Sports Stadium. However, owing to the crucial match of the Black Stars in their away fixture at Moroni which will capture lots of eyeballs on television simultaneously with the Accra derby, it will only be prudent for the local game to be postponed by the Ghana Football Association.
Organizers of the premier league have already come under intense pressure after refusing to fix mid-week games under flood light at the Nations Wembley to afford the working class throng the stadium after work. The timing and fixture of the Accra Derby will further add to the above criticism which will avoid patronage at the Accra Sports Stadium which has become a canker to the development of the local game.
Lying 13th and 14th respectively on the league log, the Accra derby will have provided a mouthwatering fixture for the fans. The unfortunate timing of the fixture which is one hour before the crucial fixture in Comoros will certainly skew football fans to the television set rather than the Accra Sports Stadium.
Accra Lions are yet to defeat Accra Hearts of Oak after four games since promotion to the topflight in 2021.
