Asante Kotoko and Southampton Ink A Partnership Agreement
Ghana’s biggest Football Club, Kumasi Asante Kotoko S.C has announced a newly signed partnership agreement with English Premier League club, Southampton.
This partnership allows both club staff to exchange visits between the UK and Ghana, as well as opportunities for Kotoko’s young players to attend annual UK Player Development camps and experience the Southampton Academy methodology.
According to Nana Yaw Amponsah CEO of Kotoka, he said; “This partnership enables us to plug Asante Kotoko into Southampton in such a way that Kotoko functions like Southampton. Kotoko would have everything Southampton has but to a level that reflects our different budgets. I believe that with the expertise and resources available at Southampton, we can tap into this and develop our setup to look and feel professional like Saints.”
