The much anticipated clash between Asante Kotoko SC and Hearts Of Oak SC at the Barnet Stadium in London after the original date was rescheduled.
The two biggest Ghanaian clubs were set to go head to head on March 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom but will now have to wait for a new date.
Below is the full statement published by the Ghana FA.
”The much anticipated Independence Cup match between Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko has been postponed.”
”Torrential downpour in the last few days have affected the Barnet pitch, necessitating the postponement of the matches of the National League club, Barnet, and this has affected the scheduled Hearts-Kotoko match at the same venue.
”According to the Barnet Chairman, Tony Kleathous, “There is no real problem with the pitch that a dry spell and a bit work would not quickly resolve, but we have barely had a day without rain since September, and the forecast one in hundred year event has now become our reality.”
”HRH Sports Consult and ProBall International, who are the organizers of the match, in consultation with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the two clubs have picked the weekend of Easter holidays as the new date for the match.
”Further details will be communicated in earnest.
”The Organisers of the match have sent their apologies to all stakeholders including the GFA for all inconveniences caused,”
