The Kumasi-based outfit will meet arch rivals Hearts of Oak, who saw off Wa All Stars 2-1 in the first semifinal clash on Sunday at the same venue, in the grand final.

The Phobians will hope to get one over their old nemesis this time around after losing 4-2 in the 1990 final.

Hearts, who are record holders of the competition last tasted glory in the competition in the 2000 season when they defeated Okwahu United 2-0 in the final.

The final showdown between the two most glamorous clubs is set to come off at the Tamale Sports Stadium on the October 29.
