Today marks exactly 83 years since @AsanteKotoko_SC was established on August 31, 1935. #Hasmal media team looked into the archives and settled on the best players to have had stints with both Sekondi Hasaacas FC and Kumasi Asante Kotoko. #RIP Head Coach Herbert Addo pic.twitter.com/KEBBdH11Ui

Sports Journalists in the STMA knowing the visit of the Kumasi Asante Kotoko have already initiated a campaign for a friendly at the Sekondi Sports Stadium.
Ace Sports Broadcaster Kyei Yaw Baffour on Spice 91.9 FM opined – “The relationship between Asante Kotoko and Sekondi Hasaacas dates way back, there’s no way Kotoko has to come to Takoradi and not play either of Hasaacas or Eleven Wise, it shouldn’t be the case”.
“Kotoko should play a game at the Sekondi Sports Stadium and deservedly Hasaacas and Eleven Wise is better placed to give them a good run for their money”.
Not only him, host of the show, Abednego Abaidoo added – “fans of Asante Kotoko cannot accept such a thing from the club’s management, it’s something the fans deserve and in the capital too. We cannot have a game outside the region’s capital. It has been a while Asante Kotoko played a game here”.
Not only the two, others including Stephen Kwame Yeboah have shared similar opinions in a WhatsApp Chat by the name Western Media Club.
