Feature: 18 Months In Exile, Will Asante Kotoko SC’s Return To Baba Yara Stadium Usher In New Era?

Ghana’s most decorated football club Asante Kotoko SC makes an emotional return to the Baba Yara stadium for the first time in 18 months when they host high flying Bechem United FC .

The Reds have combed for a niche on the local scene switching between Accra Sports stadium and the Obuasi Len Clay as adopted venues for their home fixtures.

Renovation work at the Baba Yara sports stadium took Asante Kotoko SC out of the reach in a turbulent 18-month spell.

Match day two of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League however presented an avenue for the newly assembled ‘Galacticos’ to showcase their worth, readiness, maturity and hunger to represent the Red Army of Ghana football.

The unforgiving and difficult-to-please supporters of Asante Kotoko SC are expected to storm the stadium hours ahead of kick off.

Like most football teams, the expected pressure from the fans will either make or break the team with over 30 fixtures to play.

Having dispatched Medeama SC 4-0 in their last match ahead of the trip to Kumasi, Bechem United Football Club will not come as tourist, participants or accept defeat like any normal component of the game. They will fight, resist oppression and unleash extra motivation to the detriment of Asante Kotoko SC.

Asante Kotoko SC, 3-1 winners over Legon Cities FC in their last league match, will have to difficult tough skin, develop self belief and avoid listening to any comment whatsoever from the ‘noisy’ fan base. Question is, can the current crop of young players contain the must-win-attitude from the supporters?

Sunday, November 7, 2021, might just be another match day but the repercussion can be damning on the team all season long or usher in a new era where clubs will not dream of visiting the dreaded Baba Yara sports stadium.

Asante Kotoko SC need to win but most importantly they have to avoid cracking under the expected pressure from the fan base. A honeymoon outing at home to Bechem United FC will certainly change the fortune of Asante Kotoko SC as the search for the first league crown in 6 years take shape.
