Ghana Premier League champions Kumasi Asante Kotoko have announced the cancellation of their scheduled Turkey preseason tour.
The Porcupine Warriors were expected to leave Ghana a week ago to continue their preseason tour before the start of the 2022-23 season in Ghana.
But according to the club, the decision to cancel the trip was considered due to challenges in visa acquisition.
“Our planned trip to Turkey for the second phase of our preseason has been canceled due to issues related to delays in visa acquisition,” Asante Kotoko said in a statement on Sunday morning.
Following this, the management of the team decided to travel to Sudan instead for the second phase of their preseason.
They will engage in a series of preseason friendlies against Sudanese clubs that have qualified for the CAF Competitions during the period.
“The club has therefore opted to travel to Sudan from 21st August 2022 to 1st September 2022 for the second phase of our preseason.
“We will be engaged in strategic friendly games with other opponents who have qualified for CAF competitions,” Kumasi Asante Kotoko noted.
One of the clubs the reigning Ghanaian champions will take on is Sudanese powerhouse, Al-Hilal Omdurman on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.
