The much talked about President's cup game between Kumasi Asante Kotoko and bitter rivals Accra Hearts of Oak has been rained off at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Before the match could even start there was some torrential rainfall at the stadium making it difficult to even kick a ball so it was surprising the match was even started after the Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah did the kick off on behalf of the President.
10 minutes into the game centre referee Bernard Domfeh called captaians of the two sides into a mini conference before deciding to call off the game.
It is expected to come off Monday 9th September 2019 at the same venue but news ghanaguardian.com is gathering is that Asante Kotoko are reluctant to play the game since they have a crunch champions league game against Etoile Sportice Du Sahel.
This is the fifth time the two glamorous clubs are meeting in the President Cup with Kotoko winning three of the previous four.
