Kumasi Asante Kotoko and rivals Obuasi Ashantigold played a 1-1 drawn game after 120 minutes to climax the 80th birthday celebration of former President, John Agyekum Kufuor in the maiden J.A. Kufuor Cup at the Baba Yara Stadium on January 6, 2019.
The cup match, sponsored by UMB and organised by Primeval Media, under the auspices of the J.A. Kufuor Foundation, will fix a new date to determine the ultimate winner of the match.
Emmanuel Gyamfi and midfielder Richard Ella Djodi scored for Kotoko and Ashgold, respectively after 90 minutes to push the match to extra time.
Former President Kufuor was unable to make it to the big game but he was ably represented by the Sports Minister Mr. Isaac Asiamah and MP for Asokwa, Ms. Patricia Apeagyei and other dignitaries.
The teams swung into action after the exchange of pleasantries led by Bamtamahene, Baffour Amankwatia VI, who stood in for the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
