Diaspora and International Relations Manager of Asante Kotoko, Akosua Dentaa Amoateng has reacted to the Porcupines new kits for the upcoming season.
The award winning Tv presenter disclosed the secret behind the image of Otumfour Osei Tutu seen in their new kits designed by Errea.
According to the British-Ghanaian entrepreneur, the 2022/23 jersey for the Porcupine Warriors is designed to promote the culture of the Ashanti Kingdom as well as Ghana.
The home kit comes with the traditional red colour whilst the away kit is in green, just as the previous season.
This season’s theme, according to the Ghana Premier League champions is, “Celebrating the pillar of peace: His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II”.
The image of the club’s patron Otumfour Osei Tutu II is placed on the right bottom side of both jerseys for the first time in the history of the club.
Akosua Dentaa Amoateng who joined Nana Yaw Amponsah’s administration in 2020 has explained why the image was placed in their new kits for the upcoming season.
“We are absolutely promoting Asanteman, we are promoting our culture, we are promoting our King. That alone shows that we are promoting Ghana and tourism through the Ashanti Kingdom. That’s what we’re doing,” she told Ghanasportspage.com after Kotoko’s Turkey pre-season tour launch at the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday.
The Porcupine Warriors officially launched their Turkey pre-season tour which is scheduled to come off in August and their Ghana-Naija Super Cup against Rivers United of Nigeria in Istanbul.
Kotoko will fly out from Ghana to prepare for the 2022/23 campaign as they hope to revive their dominance in African football.
