Ghana Premier League strugglers, Kotoku Royals say, they combed the whole of Eastern Region but had no venue to honour their home games after qualifying for the 2022/23 BetPawa Premier League.
The Akim Oda based side qualified for the Premier League from ZONE III but are currently bottom of the League table.
Their Akim Oda Sports Stadium did not meet the required standard of the Ghana Football Association’s Club Licensing Board and they were made to play home games at the Cape Coast Stadium.
The team has now moved to the Dawu Stadium and currently host their home games at the Theatre of Dreams.
Spokesperson for Kotoku Royals, Okatakyie Afrifa narrates how difficult it is to play homes games far from hiome.
“The biggest worry is that, when the Oda Sports Stadium was not ready for us to play our games, the whole Eastern Region didn’t have a standard pitch which Kotoku Royals can play.
“So Kotoku Royals from the Eastern Region in Oda we had to go all the way to the Central Region in Cape Coast to play our home games.
“And I think this is the biggest punishment the club has been going through this season and it is not nice.” Okatakyie Afrifa told Radio Gold Sports.
Kotoku Royals have 23 points from 29 games and bottom of the league log. With five games to end the season, their survival chances look very slim.
