Asante Kotoko will on July 15, 2021, launch their partnership deal with English Premier League side Southampton FC.
The Porcupines and the Saints on Tuesday, January 20, 2021, announced a partnership agreement.
The partnership will see Southampton supporting the development of Asante Kotoko’s strategy both on and off the pitch.
Southampton will share their industry-leading coaching expertise to help Asante Kotoko realise their ambition of building a sustainable Academy and pathway to the first team, with year-round remote support supplemented by regular visits to Ghana throughout the partnership from the club’s International Football Partnership team.
The partnership will include Academy staff exchange visits between the UK and Ghana, as well as opportunities for Asante Kotoko’s young players to attend annual UK Player Development camps and experience the Southampton Academy methodology first-hand when travel corridors open up and it is safe to travel.
Southampton will also support the development of Asante Kotoko’s commercial and operational strategy through collaborating on key projects.
