first_imgKumasi Asante Kotoko kickstart life at their new home for the rest of the season on Friday night.Kotoko host Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium in the evening kick-off, before the weekend’s full schedule.This means that Legon Cities, who usually have Friday nights in the Premier League on lockdown, have had their home game against Eleven Wonders shunted to Saturday.The Baba Yara Stadium, Kotoko’s traditional home ground, is currently undergoing renovations and presumably, will not be available until the end of the season at least.As such, the Kumasi club have been forced to abandon their traditional home comforts for Accra.Asante Kotoko still manage to draw huge crowds when they play in AccraKotoko have 12 home games left in the current Ghana Premier League season, with more than a few tasty ties in there.They start this run of games against Bechem United and they round off their season at home to King Faisal.In between those games, they face Great Olympics and Legon Cities – who also call the Accra Sports Stadium home – in Week 16 and Week 19 respectively.Fellow tenants, Inter Allies are Kotoko’s opponents in their penultimate home game of the league season.The match against fellow title contenders, Medeama in Week 21 is certainly another game that will get tongues wagging.Arguably, Kotoko’s biggest remaining home game is the Week 23 clash with Accra Hearts of Oak.The match will be even more anticipated because Hearts will be seeking revenge for January’s last-minute defeat to the Porcupine Warriors on the same ground.Kotoko’s remaining home ties in the Ghana Premier LeagueWeek 12 vs Bechem UnitedWeek 14 vs Elmina SharksWeek 16 vs Great OlympicsWeek 19 vs Legon CitiesWeek 21 vs MedeamaWeek 23 vs Hearts of OakWeek 25 vs WAFAWeek 26 vs Dreams FCWeek 28 vs Aduana StarsWeek 30 vs KarelaWeek 32 vs Inter AlliesWeek 34 vs King Faisallast_img read more
