Berekum Chelsea are expecting the arrival of their Champions League opponents Atlabar FC on Wednesday.
The South Sudanese club have communicated they will be arriving with a 28-man contingent.
The Blues will be kicking off their second campaign in the Champions League at home to Atlabar on Sunday.
Reports however emerged of Chelsea’s intention to withdraw from the competition due to lacking resources to foot the enormous bills of an African campaign.
The club has however assured of their preparedness to compete in the Champions League and are now prepared to host their guests.
“We are expecting the arrival of our opponent’s on Wednesday morning,” Berekum Chelsea’s General Manager Francis Oduro Sarfo told Metro FM.
“They will be arriving with a 28-man contingent. They will spend the night in Accra and then catch the morning flight to Sunyani on Thursday.”
Chelsea who were runner’s up in last season’s Ghanaian top flight qualified to this year’s Champions League by default after CAF had returned Ghana’s lost African club competition’s automatic qualification slots.
