MTN FA Cup committee chairman; Mr. Kurt Edwin Simon Okraku has pointed out that, elimination by rough tactics has never been a principle of the Committee to get the smaller teams out for Kotoko and Hearts to get to the finals of the competition.
According to the Executive Director of Dreams FC on Sportsnite, the four teams (Medeama, Hearts, Wa All Stars and Kotoko) qualified to the semifinals on merit; but as to whether the penalty incident that happened between Kotoko and Nea Salamina on sunday is or not a genuine one, he cannot justify. “i have heard different account from different individuals regarding the penalty incident, but since i was not at the Baba Yara stadium and didn’t watch the match on TV, i cannot comment on it.” He stated
The semifinal draw of the MTN FA Cup takes place on the 22nd of August at the Mplaza Hotel in Accra during which the hosting venues for the semifinal matches and the hosting region of the grand final will be announced.
