Asante Kotoko netted GHC 45,000 as gate proceeds in their first home game of the season against Medeama which ended 2-2 last Sunday, the club has confirmed.
The game which the Porcupine Warriors failed to impress saw close to 30,000 fans troop in to watch the weekend’s top liner.
Asante Kotoko in front of their boisterous crowd opened the scoring through Bennet Ofori after an error by Medeama’s goalie Michael Sai but before the break, the away side restored parity courtesy Malik Akowuah’s brilliant free-kick.
Michael Yeboah restored the Porcupine Warriors’ lead in the second half but they got pegged back through Bismark Oppong’s 20 yards half volley.
Despite Kotoko failing to pick the three maximum points, they had something to be joyful of as they bagged in a net gate proceeds of GHC 45,000.
“We thank the supporters for trooping in to support the team, the disappointment was we couldn’t win the three points. After Sunday’s game we recorded a gross of GHC 95, 000 and after deductions we took home GHC 45, 000,” the club’s General Manager Opoku Nti told Ash FM.
Asante Kotoko on Wednesday will clear their Ghana Premier League fixture against Ashanti Gold at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
