Kotoko budget US$ 400, 000 for Champions League preliminary stage

Asante Kotoko have budgeted US$ 400, 000 for their CAF Champions League preliminary round matches.

The clubs Africa Committee led by chairman Alhaji Lamine met on Wednesday to discuss their trip in the 2015 campaign.

Others members of the committee are Opoku Nti, Didi Dramani, George Kennedy, Prince Polley, Dr Kweku Frimpong and Kweku Amponsah

Kotoko were billed to play East End Lions in the first round but their Sierra Leonean opponents have withdrawn from the competition.

Last year, Kotoko were eliminated by minnows Barrack Young Controllers but the triple Ghanaian champions want to reach the Group stage.
