The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that the Super Cup match between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak will now be played on Monday, September 5, 2022.
The match was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, September 4, 2022, but the GFA, in a statement, said the change was due to the crucial qualifier between Ghana and Nigeria in the qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Nations Championships (CHAN).
The statement on the FA’s website said: “The Ghana Football Association has moved the Super Cup from Sunday, September 4 to Monday, September 5, 2022.
“This is due to the crucial CHAN qualifier between Ghana and Nigeria, which is fixed for Cape Coast and Abuja respectively. The 1st leg would take place on Sunday, August 28, while the 2nd leg is scheduled for the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on Saturday, September 3, 2022.”
