Black Stars will play against Kumasi Asante Kotoko in a friendly match on Friday, October 12, 2018, at the Baba Yara Sports stadium.


This comes on the back of Ghana's 2019 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone being cancelled after the SLFA failed to meet FIFA's deadline for their suspension appeal.

A communique from CAF informed the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA), Normalization Committee that “the CAN 2019 Qualifier match no. 65 (Ghana vs Sierra Leone) & 89 (Sierra Leone vs Ghana) on the 11th and 14th of October respectively have been cancelled.”

The letter signed by Samson Adamu, Director of Competition at CAF, further said it was “due to the fact that the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), did not meet the conditions stipulated in the letter sent by CAF on FIFA’s decision to suspend the federation.

“As a result, all officials appointed for match no 89 (Sierra Leone vs Ghana) are not to travel as their mission has been cancelled, likewise, the officials who have travelled for Match no 65 (Ghana vs Sierra Leone) are requested to travel back home since the match has been cancelled.”
