Accra Hearts of Oak’s pre-season test game with Heart of Lions has been called off for lack of venue, Ghanasoccernet.com can confirm.
Lions were determined to apply the brakes on the Phobians’ impressive pre-season run at the Tema Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
But outstanding issues with the venue’s readiness for the brand new Glo Premier League season forced club officials look elsewhere.
“We were initially considering the Accra Sports Stadium but because of the launch of the 2012/13 league and the Super Cup we moved it to Tema Stadium.” Hearts of Oak PRO Muheeb Saeed explained.
“Because of the PLB’s reservations with the venue for the upcoming season’s games, we were told we cannot use it. The next option was El Wak but the timing was not great for us so we resolved with Lions to call off the game.”
Hearts are undefeated in the pre-season.
