Communications Manager of Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko, Moses Antwi Benefo has disclosed his outfit will put a petition before the government of Ghana to allow fans into the stadium ahead of their return leg against FC Nouadhibou this weekend.
Asante Kotoko, Ghana’s sole representatives in the CAF Champions League mustered a one-all stalemate with the Mauritania champions last Sunday and are poised to book their ticket in the next phase of the competition this Sunday.
Meanwhile the Porcupine Warriors want to incorporate their large fanbase into the fabric of their qualification. However the barrier lies with government’s ban on fans trooping to the stadium.
But according to the two-time African champions, they are willing to write to the government through the Ministry of Youth and Sports to allow fans in the stadium for the return leg.
“Asante Kotoko will write to Ghana Government through the Ministry of Youth and Sports to allow us admit fans at the Accra Sports Stadium in the 2nd Leg match against FC Nouadhibou which is on Sunday,” Moses Antwi Benefo affectionately called PJ Mozey told Oyerepa FM.
He added: “We will be happy should they allow half of the stadium [20,000],”
He made reference to their opponents, FC Nouadhibou who were allowed by the Mauritania government to admit fans for the first leg.
“In Mauritania, they showed us clearance from CAF because their government allowed them so we will also write to ask for that opportunity.”
