AshantiGold SC have announced their participation in the 2020/21 Caf Confederations Cup.

 The Ghana Football Association [GFA] on Thursday, September 3 wrote to the club to confirm its participation in the Caf Inter-club competition.

The Miners were given the nod following the truncation of the 2019/20 domestic football due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

According to the CAF statutes, the team that last represented a country before the end of the leagues due to the coronavirus is eligible to play in the competition.


A statement on the club’s website reads:

“Upon receiving a notice from the Ghana Football Association, Ashantigold SC on Thursday, 3rd September 2020 confirmed to the Association to participate in the 2020/21 CAF confederations cup.

“The club has taken steps to effectively comply with all directives with regards to the CAF club licensing application procedures.”

The 2020/21 Confederations Cup is scheduled to commence on the 20th of November this year.

The club is as well putting in place measures to commence full scale training activities as soon as restrictions on contact sports are lifted.

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko are also expected to confirm their participation.
