Kotoko Rakes $120,000… From Étoile Clash

Asante Kotoko realised an amount of GH¢653,000 (approximately $120,000) as gross gate proceeds from Sunday’s CAF Champions League home game with Étoile du Sahel.

The figure is an improvement on their last home game against Kano Pillars at the Baba Yara Stadium where they grossed GH¢509,000 in August.

A flat rate of GH¢20 was charged across the red, yellow and green stands of the Baba Yara Stadium while VIP stands went for GH¢50.

Also, a total of 36,000 tickets were printed but they were not sold out despite the stadium looking jam-packed by the end of the game. According to club sources, about 29,000 tickets were sold.

While making one of their highest incomes from the home games in the year, Kotoko also secured victory over the Tunisians – a 2-0 win in the first leg of their play-off to the group stage of the 2019/20 CAF Champions League.

The Porcupine Warriors, who are chasing an end to a 13-year ‘Money Zone’ drought in the competition, would travel to face Étoile du Sahel in the second leg at Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet in Monastir on September 27.
