CAFCC: Kotoko receive financial boost from Normalization Committee
<><>The GFA Normalization Committee (N.C) has extended<><> financial support<><> of $30,000 to Asante <><>Kotoko<><> in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign.
<><>The NC is following the GFA tradition of supporting Ghanaian clubs who represent the country in continental club competitions.
The Kofi Amoal-led committee believes this gesture will be consistent with the greater vision of the NC to ensure that Ghanaian clubs, in general, thrive<><> under their watch.
<><>Having missed out on the October 15 deadline set by CAF for its affiliated national associations to submit their candidates for the 2018/19 CAF Inter- Club competitions, the NC appealed to CAF to extend its deadline for the submission of names of Ghanaian clubs.
<><>The extension created a golden opportunity for Asante <><>Kotoko<><> to represent Ghana in this year's CAF Confederation Cup.
<><>This was after the Normalization Committee and the clubs had unanimously agreed not to put forward representatives for the 2018/19 CAF Inter Club competitions.
<><>In addition to this<><>,<><> the NC liaised with government to put together a package for Ghanaian clubs that will represent the country in continental club competitions. <><>Kotoko<><> being the maiden beneficiaries of this new scheme received $150,000 from government.
<><>It is in the interest of the NC that this will motivate the porcupine warriors to conquer <><>Zesco<><> United and advance to the next stage of the competition.
