Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko have been ranked as Africa’s tenth best club of the 21st century by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics.

The Kumasi-based side have won three league titles since 2001 with 783.5 points making them the best in the country.

In May 2010, Kotoko were awarded “The African Club of the 20th Century” at a World Football Gala hosted by IFFHS in London.

Their rivals Hearts of Oak despite winning five league titles after the turn of the millennium are ranked 23rd on the continent.

King Faisal, who were relegated from the Ghana top flight last season, are rated 53rd.

AshantiGold, 1997 CAF Champions League runners-up, are in the 56 position.

Kotoko’s position was attained after national club competitions, continental inter-clubs competition and FIFA’s monthly Club World Rankings were taken into consideration.

Every single result of the aforementioned competitions is taken into consideration from the beginning to the end.

Hence, the chances are the same for all the clubs within the same football continent.

Al-Ahly Cairo from Egypt lead the African club ranking of the 21st century ahead of the two Tunisian clubs Esperance Sportive de Tunis and Etoile Sportive du Sahel.
