Asante Kotoko have received a GHC 50,000 (US$ 25,000) cash support Budget Cash and Carry Limited, distributors of Blues Jeans energy drink for their Africa campaign. Â
The two-time African champions will host Liberian side Barrack Young Controllers on Sunday in the first leg of the first qualifying round on Sunday at home.
â€œOur donation is inspired by the continuous demand of Otumfuo for Kotoko to bring an Africa trophy to him,â€ Managing Director of Budget Cash and Carry Nana Egyir Aggrey said.
â€œAnd this is our modest way of putting our shoulder to the wheel to push Kotoko forward.
â€œWe are not into making promises but I want to assure you that if you go and do well, Blue Jeans will reward you mightily far above your expectations.â€™â€™
Kotoko warmed up for the tie with a 3-0 win over lower division side First Klaas FC in the MTN FA Cup round of 32 tie.
