Kotoko have won the Champions of Champions trophy

Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have been declared winner of the season opener Champions of Champions without kicking a ball after clinching the double last term.

Premier League and FA Cup winners, Kotoko were declared Champions of Champions for the 2013-14 season following an internal meeting of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The Emergency Committee of the GFA in a statement quoted article 10(2) of the General Regulations to back its decision.

“The Champion of the Premier Division League and the Champion of the FA Cup competition, if not one and the same club, shall play a straight knockout match and the winner shall be declared the Super Champion," Article 10(2) of the GFA General Regulation stipulates.

"In the event of the league champion being the same as the FA Cup champion, that Club shall be declared the automatic champion of champions.

"The GFA Executive Committee may, however also, organize a ceremonial match between the club and either the runners up in the league or FA Cup for the purpose of awarding the trophy.”

Kotoko will thus be awarded with the Super Cup trophy at a date to be determined by the GFA .

    I've missed these players big time. I don't remember them all but at least I remember Michael Asante, Yusif Chibsah, Ember Power, Stephen Oduro, xxx and Isaac Boakye. I've forgotten #15. I stand for correction if I didn't them all correct. May God bless you all for your contribution to the Club.
