Hearts v Kotoko on Aug 30
Posted: 31 July 2009 Time: 1:19 pm
The pre-season Top 4 competition will kick off on August 23 with a chance for the country's finest clubs to settle some old scores.
The top 4 which brings together the top finishers in the League in an all play all system plus a final has developed into one of the most anticipated events on the Ghana football calendar.
And after the clubs finally managed to sort out the traditional back and fourth debate over appearance fees and price monies, the four teams Hearts, Kotoko, King Faisal and Heart of Lions will get down to playing the football.
The opening day fixtures will pit Asante Kotoko against Heart of Lions in Kumasi while Hearts and King Faisal will play in Accra. Inevitably though the fixture that will generate the most interest is Hearts of Oak's trip to play Asante Kotoko in Kumasi.
The lasst trip by the Phobians to Oseikrom ended in victory but also poor organisation and security arrangement that resulted in the deaths of eight fans.
With the top 4 due to get off after the start of the hugely popular English Premier League season too, organisers will be hoping for much better luck with stadium attendances than they got last year.
