KUMASI ASANTE Kotoko will today play Red Bull Academy in a friendly game. The game is expected to be Kotoko’s last friendly contest before the new league season starts this weekend.
The match will take place at Sogakope, the home grounds of Red Bull Academy and it is expected to be watched by a large number of fans.
Red Bull Academy owns artificial turf and this is said to have influenced Kotoko’s decision to play against their hosts. Kotoko would open their season with a crunch tie against Tema Youth on an artificial pitch at Tema.
Kotoko management wants the team to be acquainted with how to play on an artificial turf, hence playing Red Bull Academy at Sogakope.
Kotoko would stay at Sogakope after the game and train on the artificial turf till Friday when they would move to Tema for the league opener. Communications Director of Kotoko, Listowell Yesu Bukerson said Kotoko would train on the artificial turf at Tema a day before the contest.
