Kotoko should expand beyond football-Asantehene
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has charged the Asante Kototo Board of Directors to look ways the club will develop other sporting brands aside from football.
The Life Patron and Spiritual owner of the club said: “Kotoko should expand beyond football and embrace other sporting disciplines which could be of utmost importance to the Club in terms of revenue generation, branding, and infrastructural development.”
The Asantehene said this in a speech read on his behalf by Mr. Kofi Badu, Chief of Staff, Manhyia Palace, at the inauguration of the Dr. Kwame Kyei-led nine-member Board, in Kumasi, also advised the members to give priority to women’s football.
The respected traditional leader said the club must begin to do things in a way that befitted their status as a sporting club.
He believes this was the only way for the club to expand.
He admonished them to come out with innovative products underpinning possible opportunities in disciplines such as basketball, boxing, tennis, athletics, amongst others.
