The first leg of the MTN Super Two charity match between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak grossed US$ 110,193. Â
The organizers, Come to My Aid, a non Governmental Organization, confirmed they sold 36,200 tickets despite a full capacity at the 40,000-seater stadium.
The two Ghanaian giants have come under fire for their inability to challenge big spending Berekum Chelsea and Medeama.
Keen to show their power in Ghana football, the two sides agreed to play in the friendly.
The match drew large crowds to the Baba Yara Stadium and underlined the status of the two biggest sides in the country.
''It's true the stadium was full to its capacity but a number of the spectators went in without paying," Finance Committee chairman Reverend Stephen Kwaku Fokuah told Angel FM.
"Others also went in through dubious means and those with fake tickets were arrested and put behind bars."
