The draw for the 2017/18 MTN FA Cup Round of 64 was held at the Secretariat of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Tuesday morning with some interesting parings with matches set to take place on the 24-27 May, 2018.
The 64 teams, which include the 16 Premier League clubs, 24 Division One League clubs and 24 clubs from Division Two League would battle it out for a place in the round of 32.
Defending FA Cup Champions, Asante Kotoko would lock horns with division one side Kwahu Youth Academy at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium as they begin the defence to the title and add up to the 10 FA Cup trophies.
Last year finalists and 10-time champions of the competition, Accra Hearts of Oak would face regional rivals Accra Young Wise and would be looking to complete the double over the Kasoa based who they eliminated last year at the same round.
Reigning Premier League Champions, Aduana Stars kick start their campaign in this year’s competition against division two Young Apostles whilst their Premier League counterpart, Berekum Chelsea engage Berekum Arsenal in a very fascinating and highly anticipated derby clash.
