“We want to play in Africa,” both head coaches of the two sides said. John Eduafo, Tano Bofoakwa’s head coach talked about the possibility of playing in the CAF Confederation Cup as a huge motivation for the Sunyani-based club even though they have been relegated.

Maxwell Konadu also revealed how important the final is to Nsoatreman as it will give them the ticket to play African club football on the continent for the first time.

The two teams have played two goalless draws in the Ghana Premier League making the fixture a tight one to predict.

The General manager of Nsoatreman, Eric Alagedede believes this third meeting between the two teams will be different from the first two.

“We are well motivated to win this trophy, we have already played two draws and I’m fully convinced we will beat Tano Boafoakwa so everyone must visit the University of Ghana Sports Stadium to witness history”.

Bofoakwa Tano will struggle for intrinsic motivation as they have lost all their last five games heading into the MTN FA Cup finals. John Eduafo’s Bofo have been relegated and it will be so sensational to see them triumph and book their slot for next season’s CAF Confederation Cup.

Maxwell Konadu always will remember when he was attacked and beaten mercilessly by Bofoakwa fans at the Sunyani Coronation Park when these two teams met. Nsoatreman has had a great season per their standards.

“We wanted to remain in the league, that was our aim for the season so winning the FA Cup will be icing on the cake for Nsoatreman,” General Manager Eric Alagedede said in an interview with Joseph Osei Bonsu on AP Sports Extra on Saturday.

A whole lot is at stake for both teams as bragging rights, who is the King of the Bono Region, pride, cash and a place for the 2024-25 CAF Confederation Cup will spice the fixture.

Emmanuel Agyeman Badu has been selected by the MTN FA Cup Committee to hand the cup over to whoever wins.

A beautiful football and entertainment atmosphere is expected on Sunday at 6 pm in Accra at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium for the 2023-24 MTN FA Cup finals.
