The Ghana Football Association has urged Aduana Stars to replicate their success in the first round when they take on Algeria’s squad of ES Setif in their second CAF Champions League game to be played at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Wednesday March 7th on 13 hours PM local time or 14 hours PM Algerian time with the officiating referee hailing from Ivory Coast, namely Denis Dembele.
The Ghana Football Association has moved to motivate Aduana’s Fire Boys as they brace to face their Algerian counterparts.
Ghana’s sole survivors in Africa, Aduana Stars, have received a financial incentive ahead of their CAF Champions League clash with Algerian side ES Setif on Wednesday.
To help their campaign in the first round of the elite continental inter-club competition, the Fire Boys of Aduana have been handed a sum of $30,000 Dollars or around 350 million centimes (DA) by Ghana’s Football Association.
“The GFA Executive Committee has agreed to give the players of Aduana Stars an amount of $30,000 to boost their preparations for their upcoming CAF Champions League match versus ES Setif,” the football governing body announced.
“The Ghanaian League Champions will host their Algerian opponents in the first of the two-legged games on Wednesday March 7.
“At its last meeting held in Accra on Thursday, the GFA Executive Committee unanimously agreed to support Ghana’s remaining club on the continental stage as they seek to break into the Group stages of the African football competition”.
The return leg of Wednesday’s fixture is set for March 16th in Sétif stadium in eastern Algeria under the watchful eye of referee Enphrem Zio from Burkina Fasso.
Aduana Stars earlier beat Libyan side Al-Tahaddy 2-1 on aggregate to reach the first round of the competition.
On the other hand, Asante Kotoko, Ghana’s sole representatives in the African Confederation Cup could not go past the preliminary stage.
