The Essipong Stadium in Sekondi will host this year’s final of the MTN FA Cup involving Asante Kotoko and Medeama next month.
Information gathered by Citi Sports indicates that the Essipong Stadium has tentatively been selected by the FA Cup Committee for the final billed for August, 30.
The choice, according to the source was in line with the Committee’s policy to give this year’s competition a nationwide appeal.
This comes after the semi-finals matches between Aduana Stars and Asante Kotoko, Hearts and Medeama were hosted by the Sunyani and Cape Coast stadia respectively.
The winner automatically qualifies for next season’s edition of CAF Confederation Cup plus GH¢ 50,000 cash for preparations in addition to GH¢ 30,000 prize money.
The last time both sides met in the FA Cup final was in 2013 when Medeama emerged winners.
