Kotoko CEO Defends High Rates

George Amoako

Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has called on the supporters to rally behind the team against Kariobangi Sharks tomorrow as he defends the gate charges for the duel.

The Porcupine Warriors host the Kenyans in the second leg of the second round of the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup at the Baba Yara Stadium with tickets going for GH¢ 20 at the Popular Stand and the Centre Line, GH¢ 50 at the VIP and GH¢ 80 at the VVIP.

George Amoako told a press conference on Wednesday, the move is to generate funds to defray part of the cost being incurred in the campaign.

“The GH¢ 20, GH¢ 50, and GH¢ 80 we are charging are the least we are starting with. It will be increased as we progress in the competition and our cost increases.”

“Our provisional budget for the 1st leg against Sharks stands at GH¢288, 443, and the two legs in total will cost us GH¢ 417, 000.”

“With this figure hanging around our neck, we will need to charge these rates to cover part of the expenses.”

“We want to go far in the competition, and so have put things in place to support the project. We must come out in our numbers and pay at the stadium to support the team if we want the project to be successful.”
