MTN FA Cup Quarter Final Draw Slated For Tuesday

Eight clubs are eagerly awaiting Tuesday’s draw for the MTN FA Cup quarter-finals which will be held at the Alisa Hotel at 10:00am.

The qualified teams for the fifth round of the Cup competition includes three second-tier sides and five premiership clubs, who are all dreaming of a place in the semi-final.

Last year’s FA Cup finalists Asante Kotoko and current Premier League leaders Wa All Stars will go into the hat as well as Division One (Zone Two) leaders Elmina Sharks, Liberty Professionals, Bechem United and WAFA.

Though some fascinating ties could be thrown up, some Premier League sides would be desperate avoid each other in the quarter-final as the open system draw could throw up some interesting ties.

The competition is guaranteed a new winner following last year’s winners Medeama’s early exit.

This year’s grand final will be staged at the New Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday August 28.

Qualified teams for the Draw that will be held on June 7:

1. Elmina Sharks – Elmina

2. Okwahu United – Nkawkaw

3. Wa Rockets       – Wa

4. Wa All Stars      – Wa

5. Asante Kotoko  – Kumasi

6. Liberty Professionals – Dansoman

7. Bechem United

8. WAFA
